Footprint Butterfly Canvas

Footprint Butterfly Canvas

O.K. Spring…You can show up now! Living in the Midwest I should be use to the crazy climate, but snow in April is just obnoxious. Until this bipolar weather decides to take a hike I will be locked in doors making spring crafts with the kiddos to adorn my home with. This Beautiful Footprint Butterfly Canvas looks gorgeous up on my kitchen wall right next to my little ones Spring Time Carrot Canvas, also stamped with their little feet.

Every time I’m about to make hand or footprint art I first get my supplies all together. While gathering my supplies there is one must have item to posses when involving paint and my children, that secret weapon…Baby wipes! The millisecond after that footprint or handprint in adorably and strategically planted on the canvas, I quickly wipe all the paint off my kids with the baby wipe, keeping my floors and walls mess free!

The second secret weapon I use… Command Picture Hanging Strips by 3M

I used these awesome Crayola Neon Paints for the butterflies
