How to Make DIY Painted Potato Sacks
1. Lay the potato sack flat and mark of the areas to be painted with painter’s tape, making sure to smooth down the tape with your thumb so paint doesn’t seep underneath. You don’t have to be too exact with positioning your tape – just eyeball it! I created one wide stripe and 1-2 thin stripes on my potato sacks, positioning them a little lower than halfway down the sack.
2. Insert a piece of cardboard into the potato sack to prevent paint seeping to the back side of the sack. Add a generous amount of paint between the taped lines with a foam brush.
3. Remove the painter’s tape and the cardboard and let dry completely.
4. Have fun!
These potato sacks held up great through the party and we’ll be able to use them again for impromptu potato sack races this summer!
