Halloween Baby Craft Project

IMG_2071_1

Laura and I made this craft project when she visited back in September. A perfect little project to do with your little one’s feet! Our inspiration was from Pinterest.

Supplies:

1. canvas board – whatever size you would like. Smaller if you are only doing your kids feet, larger if you are going to include your feet too!

Large. . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Small

2. Black, Orange and White paint

3. Paintbrushes

4. Halloween colored or themed ribbon

5. Glue Gun

Steps:

1. Paint canvas with layer of black paint. Let dry IMG_1477

2. Paint bottoms of feet with white paint and stamp feet onto canvas. IMG_1488

3. Fill in feet prints to make a full ghost – when I stamped my foot, I only got the heel and toes – a pretty funny looking ghost! So, just fill in with white paint so it looks foot-shape like. Let dry.

4. Dot black eyes on ghosts.

5. Using orange paint – add ‘Happy Halloween’ to sign. And if wanted your child’s name and date.

6. Using ribbon, make loops, I did 4 of each color and then wind the end of the last ribbon around the middle to hold tight. Using a glue gun, secure ribbon to corner of canvas. **See video for demo of how I made my bows.

7. Take ribbon in whatever length you would like and glue to the back of canvas on each side to allow print to hang.

Paint a leave on a piece of paper. Using kid’s toes, dip into paint and stamp middle of leaf, creating a caterpillar. Just add eyes and antennae. Super cute!
