Christmas tree footprint art

I often wish I could freeze time. My little boys are the most precious part of my life and I just want to squeeze them and snuggle with them forever.

But every time I turn around they’ve grown another two inches, so I’m always looking for ways to capture their sweet little features… like their little feet!

For your Christmas tree footprint art, you’ll need: white canvas and paint: Christmas Green, Cranberry and Bright Yellow. (I picked up all of my supplies from JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores.)

And little feet. {wink}

Aren’t they sweet?!

Next, cut a piece of paper the size of your white space to the right of your print and write your child’s name on it. Then cut out each letter and place them next to the print. This will allow your child to keep good spacing when painting on their name.

Now it’s time to let the little ones paint. We started with a star to top our tree.

Next we added their names. I suggest starting with the middle letters in case they get a little high or a little low so you can correct the spacing with the top and bottom letters.

And we finish with the year.

As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake and create! Happy Monday everyone!
