Abby here… I’ve admitted before that I am, in fact, not very crafty with my kids.
I am generally okay with my un-craftiness until I run across something cute on Pinterest and think, “THIS CAN”T BE ROCKET SCIENCE ABBY.”
I should have known.
So, the first thing I wanted to attempt was these footprint reindeer originally found here.
Apparently I was mistaken to think both my kids feet could look cute on a 9 X 12 canvas. Turns out I would need one triple the size to pull of something like what is pictured above. I went through 3 canvas’s on Elijah’s feet before I had it right (thankfully I bought a 6 pack for $6). After we conquered a decent footprint for him, I moved on to my 15 month old thinking that would be the easy part. Again. Wrong. Here’s were we ended up.
Next up was this inspired by this pin.
I’m not crazy about everything in the picture above, but I wanted to make a slightly less cheesy version of this to give to my parents. They love sentimental things, and I thought it would be fun with the kids handprints.
I figured hands would be easier than feet, so this would be a no-brainer.
This is about as far as we got.
So sorry Mom, you won’t be unwrapping this Christmas morning.
