I'm sure by now you've all seen the pin floating around Pinterest that involves turning your kids' footprints into adorable little reindeer. In case you haven't seen it, you can find it here. In my head? This was going to be an easy craft to accomplish, considering that I would have my husband at home to help and at the very least wrangle the kids and their painted tootsies.
In reality? It was.. well.. as easy as you could imagine when painting both your 2 year old's and your 5 month old's feet with glitter paint.
What You'll Need:
Glitter-based acrylic paint for the actual prints
Red, Blue and Black paint markers for the eyes, nose and antlers
Sponge brush to paint the bottoms of your kid's feet
This craft is fairly self-explanatory. Pour a little of your paint into a dish and paint onto the bottom of your kid's feet using the sponge brush. Utilize an extra set of hands to help hold your child over the canvas as you press their feet down.
Let the initial prints dry before you use your paint markers to draw on your eyes, nose and antlers.
Be sure to add the year and any additional flourishes you wish! I think I may eventually draw a string of red and gold beaded garland around the perimeter of our canvas as a little festive frame!
