butterfly footprints

This post if very belated {4 months!}….

If you’re feeling crafty – like I was this past Mother’s Day – and you have a little one at home, then considering making butterfly footprint art as a gift {what grandmother wouldn’t love this?!} or as a keepsake for yourself.

I did this with Sadie when she was 1 month old, but obviously it would work with any age child.

What you need:

  • washable canvas
  • toxic free acrylic washable paint
  • paint brushes
  • and last but not least, two adorable feet

The steps:

  1. put the paint colors you want to use on a plate or piece of cardboard
  2. use a brush to apply paint to the bottom of your child’s foot 
  3. gently press foot against canvas, pressing down each toe 
  4. repeat steps 2 & 3 with other foot 
  5. add any embellishments that you desire to create butterfly shape  {I made mine very simple but be as creative as you can be!}
  6. enjoy your butterfly footprint artwork!
