Okay, I have one more Thanksgiving craft to share. Everett and I had fun with this over the weekend, and I wanted to share our creation.
- Baby foot.
- Ink pad.
- White card stock/canvas/paper.
- Pinking shears (optional).
- Craft glue.
- Brown card stock/paper.
- Red card stock/paper.
- Orange card stock/paper.
- Black marker.
Stamp Baby's foot on the white card stock, fanning out each print as you go. Make sure the heel is in about the same spot for each stamp. Five footprints is ideal, but I couldn't get more than three out of my wiggly guy.
Using the pinking shears, cut out a circle. I used a Christmas CD to draw the shape (you can use any CD, it doesn't have to be Christmas-themed).
Still using the pinking shears, start at the outside of the circle and cut a spiral until you reach the inside of the circle.
Starting at the inside of your spiral, twist a loose flower shape, gluing the paper in place as you go. See pictures below...it's hard to explain in words.
Glue the shape to the bottom of the footprints. Next, create the head. Cut a smaller circle with the scissors (not the pinking shears). A milk bottle cap makes a great stencil for the head. Glue the head to the body.
Use the orange card stock to make a beak, and the red card stock to make a gobble (what is the technical term for that thing anyway?). Glue these to the head, and draw in eyes with a black marker or sharpie. You're done! Don't forget to sign your work.
