Butterfly feet canvas, How to make baby feet into butterflies #BabyButterflyFeet, #Craft,My little sister came to visit last week, while she was here we celebrated her daughters 1st birthday.  I wanted to make her a gift to remember the day so my Mom and I did a fun little art project with our sweet little Rosie.   We made Butterfly Feet on a canvas to hang on her wall a home. It turned out adorable and my little sister just loved it.

To make this project you will need:

  • Art Canvas you can get them low as $1.50 each depending on size and style
  • Craft Paint
  • Make-up sponge
  • Paint brush to do detail work or a sharpie marker
  • Pencil
  • White paper to practice on a few times before you try on the canvas

Butterfly feet canvas, How to make baby feet into butterflies #BabyButterflyFeet, #Craft,I would suggest your practice a few times on paper before you try the canvas.  First step is to draw the outline of the butterfly body, so your know where to put the feet.

Use the make-up sponge to put paint on the bottom of the foot, we did a 3 color rainbow effect.  Don’t get it too thick or it will cause their feet to SLIDE and make a mess.

You want to put the RIGHT foot on the LEFT side of the butterfly body and then do the opposite on the other side.

Butterfly feet canvas, How to make baby feet into butterflies #BabyButterflyFeet, #Craft,Use a paint brush to fill in the body of the butterfly, or you could use a sharpie marker if you are not comfortable with a paint brush.  Add swirls, shading or words to make it your own.

We love how it turned out!

I absolutely love this! I'm going to try and do it with my three girls on a larger canvas. I only hope mine turns out as cute as this one!
