This watermelon print t-shirt is adorable and the shape is made from using a potato. Hobby Ideas India on YouTube shows step by step how to create this easy shirt that doesn’t require any expensive materials or supplies. Shirts are so fun to make at home, and they’re a nice DIY project because a lot of graphic tees cost $15 and up nowadays. With this potato hack, you can create a watermelon print with all of these supplies for less than $10. Also, the supplies will last for more DIY projects too. This is an interesting way to use a potato, but it’s creative. I think it shows that you can use anything around the house that you might have, without having to spend extra money. Plus, the shape from the potato stamp gives a consistent size throughout the whole shirt too.
