I have been recently taking a super cute painting class with Po where we make a different footprint painting on canvas each week to bring home. I absolutely adore all these little baby feet crafts we make and I find them kind of addictive. I wanted to try and come up with some related witch footprint crafts. I am not the most crafty so fair warning they are not the prettiest out there but I tried to be creative!
I found everything I needed at the dollar store, paint, canvas, etc.
Using my new-found expertise I decided to try for a darker blue night-time background. I dropped a few drops of black and grey scattered over the canvas, then took a moistened sponge and dipped it in blue and lightly smoothed it along the canvas. I let it dry a few minutes while I prepped for the foot print.
WARNING: Toddlers always manage to cover everything in paint no matter how careful you are.
I took off her pants and had her sit on a chair, easy access to her foot and hopefully she can sit still long enough to do it! I painted her foot green (she picked the colour). She is super ticklish so she giggled and wiggled, getting paint all over both legs, feet, and me. I stood her up and carefully pressed her foot down for the footprint. Immediately washing her off, and still paint everywhere! She had fun though.
I used some popsicle sticks to make a witches hat and then painted on some extra details, hat, buckles, dress, shoes, face, ground, fire, etc. Be creative! Embellish with what you like to see.
What is your favourite footprint art?
