Looking to add a fun and personal touch to your home decor? One great way to do so is by making your own veggie-stamped tea towels. This DIY craft is perfect for anyone looking to spruce up their kitchen or even craft a thoughtful handmade gift. 

Materials Needed:

  • Clean and ironed plain tea towels (preferably cotton or linen for best absorption)
  • Fabric paint in various colors
  • A palette or disposable plates for the paint
  • Vegetables for stamping (potatoes, okra, carrots, celery, etc.)
  • Knife (to cut and shape the vegetables)
  • Paper towels
  • Iron


  1. Choose your vegetables based on the shapes and designs you prefer. Potatoes and okra are popular choices due to their easy handling and distinctive patterns. Cut the vegetables in half or into your desired shape. If using potatoes, you can carve designs into them to create custom stamps. 
  2. Pour your fabric paint onto a palette or disposable plate. 
  3. Dip your vegetable stamp into the paint. Firmly press your painted vegetable onto the tea towel. Carefully lift it off to reveal the design. Repeat this process, reapplying paint as needed.
  4. Once you are satisfied with your design, allow the paint to dry completely. Follow the fabric paint’s instructions—some may require ironing to set the design.
