I will say this off the bat – this craft is not my idea. I’ve seen it done before and I had made a mental note to do it when I had a baby.
However, ever since I saw birthday cards from LimaLima, I wanted to personalize it a little more and as I was working on it, I got this brilliant idea that I’m SO EXCITED about.
First I’ll just share how I did this – and this project cost me less than $5!
I will also admit that I was not able to take pictures of it step-by-step because Lilly was extremely wiggly when I put the paint on her feet and I did not want paint all over everything. So you’ll just have to use your imagination.
I took an 11″x14″ blank canvas that I got on sale from Michaels plus the paint supplies you see below…
I put the green paint on a paper towel and rubbed Lilly’s foot (one at a time) in it then placed her foot on the canvas. This was tough. She is a wiggly thing.
Then I let it dry overnight.
Then I just went to town with my paint pens. That was it!
So my idea is – that every year, I will do this with her feet and I will add another portion of the Isaiah 9:6 scripture to the next canvas until I have the whole verse in succession. And, of course, I’ll add other feet of other children if God so blesses us. 🙂 I imagine it’ll take about six years to complete but how cool will that be when it’s done?!
