Emily tagged me to re-post a photo from my first 4 moths of blogging and tell the story behind it. My first blog got eaten by the internet so I had to resort to my second blog (yes, this is my fourth blog – yikes!). It was kind of fun to go back and look at the old posts. I picked these photos…just because it’s almost Christmas time and I thought it might give someone an idea for fun holiday crafts. Reindeer feet, first done by my wonderful sister-in-law Dana as a gift for my mom. She did one foot of each of her 3 children across the canvas….so cute and so much character. Ty’s foot wouldn’t fit on the canvas, it was too big, so we just did both of Taryn’s feet. They looked huge at the time but now they look so little! This year, we’ll be doing Teagan’s for sure!
The red nose is a thumb print!
When you’re done, just hotglue some ribbon around the edge and voila!
Now it’s my turn to tag someone…..I tag McGee, Jaidean, Sandra & Sarah.
I Love this idea! Can’t wait to see how Little T’s turn out 🙂
What a great idea! Thanks for sharing lyndsay!
I searched for this post when you switched blogs and I couldn’t find it! THANK YOU!
This is a great idea. Thanks for sharing. I may use this idea for Christmas this year.
Oh, I am SO doing this with my three this year!! Hopefully, with a big enough canvas, I can get them all on one. If not, to each his own!! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!!
ok that is maybe the cutest thing I’ve ever seen!
I was JUST looking through your archives for this yesterday…and couldn’t find it? THANK YOU so much for posting this, I plan on doing it this year!!!
OMG that is so adorable, almost too adorable for words. Man I wish I was crafty!! I can’t wait to do this someday.
eek! i haven’t checked blogs in awhile and i just happened to try and catch up here today and — voila — i’m tagged! 😉 good timing. hmmm… my first 4 months of blogging were pretty dark times…could be interesting.
So cute! Have a brand new Grandbaby and this will be a great little “Happy” for her Mama !!
I LOVE this!!! Where do i get the canvas? Do i mount it myself? So excited to try this!!! and you used gold paint? Anything elser i need to know about it? I think i’m going to do this as a gift so i want to make sure i get it right. And Any ideas how I could also do one really cutsy like this but not Christmasy so they could keep it up year round? Thanks a bunch!
Found this link on Pinterest and did it with my 8 month old son. I LOVE it. Thanks so much for sharing. Going to have a hard time giving them away at xmas time. May need to do another one for myself. 🙂
Love this! What did you use for the eyes? And did you just paint them right over the gold?
Absolutely too cute… Something for the older children, not just babies. I love it. Thanks for sharing. Jane Bradford

How cute! I was trying to come up with a new idea for my “little friends” (3-5 year old SpEd kids) to make as gifts for their parents. This might fit the bill – thanks for sharing!
I love the painting idea. I did this with my fifth grade class as Christmas gifts for their parents. The students loved completing their own set of reindeer footprints! Thank you!!!!
Really cute, I love it!!! Going to do it for my twin boys. LOVE the red nose thumb print too!
I love new creative ways to make art out of a child’s hands or feet. Beautiful job.
