Super-Sweet Penguin Feet

The holidays are all about traditions, right?

Around here we’re all about traditions:  we have the traditional squabble about who gets to put the Christmas tree lights on the tree, the yearly scramble to finish the holiday shopping ….etc, etc, etc.

Yep.  We’re all about traditions.

One very fun holiday project that is quickly becoming a holiday tradition is footprint artwork!

Super-Sweet Penguin Feet

Each year we paint our kid’s feet a color, have her stamp them on a 8″ x 8″ canvas, and then turn it into a footprint masterpiece!  We give these footprinted beauties as gifts for Grandmas and Great-Grandmas among other beloved relatives and friends.

This year we chose to create penguin feet!  Sometimes the initial foot stamp is less than perfect, so I have to touch up the footprints with more paint.  See the before and after below:

To recreate the penguins, you’ll need:

– Black and white acrylic craft paint

–  Paint brush

–  Washi-Tape

–  Orange scrapbook paper

–  Mod Podge

– 8″ x 8″ canvas

 I made the little hat, scarf, and earmuffs with Washi-Tape.  The beaks were cut from orange scrapbook paper and Mod-Podged on the canvas.  I painted the little eyeballs on with white and black paint.
