Halloween Footprint Art

Ok, I know this is a juvenile project, but the boys sure had fun getting their tootsies painted and I think we will look back and marvel at how tiny their feetsies once were! ;-)

So I picked up a 2 pack of canvases at Michael's for about $6. I already had the paint and ribbon so that was about the cost of this project. Love that!

First I painted the canvas black and let dry overnight. Then I took the boys outside for the fun!

I wiped their tootsies down with a wet wipe to make sure they were clean and then started painting a foot! We had some construction paper with us to practice with first :) And made a few handprints too just because!

Then we made a nice white footprint on our nice black canvas!

After both boys had done their foot prints, I let the canvas dry. Then I wrote a small BOO in the corner of each and after that dried, Mod Podged of course!

A little glitter and embellishments around the edges... I am not quite satisfied with their faces....May have to work on that!

And a bow to top it off and we have two cute wall decorations! Grammy gets to be the recipient of the second one. I had other plans for my 2nd canvas but Z felt each one needed a foot print!

So there you go, cute, inexpensive and fun craft for the kiddos too!
