Memorial Day Craft: Potato Print Poppies

1 Potato (or round flat object)
Red & Black acrylic paint
Paint brush
White paper


  1. Slice potato in half and cover the cut side with red paint, using paint brush. If using a round flat object, cover one side with red paint.
  2. To create an imprint, place the potato cut-side-down on to the paper.
  3. Carefully lift the potato.
  4. Repeat steps 2-3 below imprint, having the prints overlap slightly.
  5. Dip Q-Tip in black paint.
  6. Dot the center of the imprint, where the two imprints overlap.
  7. Feel free to write a Memorial Day message next to the poppy to display in your window.
