Pinterest Project Tuesdays: Boo’tiful Footprint Ghosts

Happy Tuesday! I know Halloween has padded but I wanted to share the fun craft I made with Colton. This was super easy, super fast, super cute and super quick. This weeks project is Boo’tiful Footprint Ghosts.

IMG_4537I remember pinning this awhile back and I knew I had to do this with Colton to have a craft to remember how tiny he was and his first Halloween. Here is the pin that inspired me.

photoThe pin takes you to Hand and Footprint Art blog. It’s a great website for all ideas for hand and footprint crafts!! Here Boo’tiful Footprint Ghosts were glow-in-the-dark and she used paint for the words. Mine was a bit different.

Here is what I did.

What you will need:

  • 8 x 10 piece of Black Cardstock, I used Glitter Cardstock
  • Orange Stickers
  • White Paint
  • Black Paint
  • Foam Paint Brushes
  • Paper plate
  • Adorable Assistant

IMG_4097The first thing you do is get your white paint and paint the bottom of the babies feet.

IMG_4100 IMG_4101Then press each foot onto the cardstock. You put the feet so that the toes are on the bottom. I put one foot in he upper right hand corner and the other on the bottom left corner.

IMG_4102Then clean off those feet!
