Potato Stamped Snowman Cards – a fun and festive DIY winter craft for kids! These potato stamped snowman cards make for a great gift for loved ones!
Potato Stamped Snowman Cards
Making simple crafts with my kids during the winter months is one of our favorite ways to keep busy when it’s just too cold to play outside. These potato stamped snowman cards are such a fun activity for the kids using some supplies you probably already have at home. We love to play with supplies we already have at home like our Bubble Paint Monsters and our Apple Stamping Craft. They make for a great DIY Christmas card that loved ones and friends will just love receiving!
We made three different “winter scene” cards and I just can’t decide which one is my favorite. We made a simple snowman, Christmas Tree, and a combination of the two! They are simple scenes that any kid can have fun creating! Even if your kids are a bit too young to actually “stamp the potato” they can certainly have fun decorating the tree and the snowman when the paint has dried.
Supplies for Potato Stamped Snowman Cards
- Potatoes, we used a mix of Russet and baby red potatoes
- Kitchen knife, for adults only
- White and Green Paint
- Cards, made from your desired card stock colors
- Bling stickers or other embellishments for the Christmas Tree
- Orange glitter foam or paper
- Sharpie marker
Directions for Christmas Tree:
- Cut our a large triangle shape from your potato. The size you cut will be determined on the size tree you want on your card.
- Paint the triangle tree on your potato in a tree green color.
- Carefully place on your card and press firmly, carefully peel off the card. Either stamp again if necessary or use a small paint brush to fill in any “holes” that you feel need to be filled in.
Once dry, decorate with your desired embellishments and add a stump out of brown construction paper.
Directions for Potato Stamped Snowman Card
- Begin by painting your small red potato white and place down on your card. We had a snowman with just a body and then a snowman with a separate head and body. Let your kids be creative in what kind of snowman they want to make.
- Add small Christmas trees around the snowman for a fun winter scene.
- Draw on your snowman face and arms with a Sharpie marker once the paint has dried.
- Attach a glittery nose to complete your snowmans look.
