It’s Day 3 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween! I have been so very anxious to share this project with Especially with you Mommies out there that have young ones. But I needed to wait for a day where I can share only this project, as I believe it deserves to be on it’s own. I’m sure you’ll agree.
This is a super simple (and quick!) project that you will for sure want to make. I saw it originally on Pintrest, and knew I just had to make them with my kidlings. All you need is a cheap-o wood plaque (mine are from Michaels and cost $1.50), black and white paint, and some ribbon. And feet.
After painting the plaques black and letting them completely dry, paint your kid’s tootsie white. They will find this highly amusing as you can see from Rhiannon’s face. :)
Then carefully place your child’s foot on the plaque, with their heel close to the top. Push gently, but firmly. Make sure all those little piggies make it on there.
They really love the tickling of the paint brush on the bottom of their feet! And what kid doesn’t love to get a little messy?
A perfect stamp of Phoenix’s foot! Next, you’ll want to write the child’s name and the year on the plaque, under the toes. Then make 2 eyes and a mouth by painting in ovals (on the heel) with your black paint. After it’s completely dry, attach some fun ribbon to the back with hot glue. Voila!
Easy peasy! And now you have their adorable footprint in spooky-cute ghost form! I love this project, and so do my kids! I hope you’ll try it with yours. Now hop along to the rest of the Wicked Bloggers…they are all listed on my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a spooktacular day!
