Easter is so early this year, does that mean Spring weather will arrive early as well!? Come on yucky Midwest winter it’s time for you to disappear. I’m impatiently awaiting stroller walks with my babies, the smell of spring air inside my home, and spring colors everywhere I look. With how cold it has been this winter socks were always covering my babies toes, when it came time for this project I finally got to see those cute little piggies out of hibernation. I’m shocked at how much my little ones feet grew in such a short time, crazy how fast time really goes by, right?
Making foot print canvas just warms my heart, and this adorable Spring Time Carrot Canvas looks gorgeous hung on my kitchen/dinning room wall. To make this simple and chic canvas first paint there toes green and the rest of the foot orange, immediately after stamping take their little finger and using green paint drag up the toes to make the carrot stem. Now get your brown paint and a brush to create your dirt for the carrots to grow. Each and every year you can redo this special project and see how much their little feet have sprouted.
Thanks to Command Picture Hanging Strips by 3M I can take my Canvas Art down every season with out leaving any marks on my wall.
