Board or Canvas
I used a blank piece of board from Joanns, I thought about using canvas but I just pictured Mark putting his foot right through it. I brought it home and spray painted it black.
Next take your first foot and paint it white. I did Eliza's foot first, I figured she would give me a bit of a problem so if she is first we could work our feet around her. I set her in her highchair, gave her a bottle, and she couldn't have cared less!
I let that dry and then did my foot
Apparently I have a very high arch in my foot, as you can see it isn't flat like Eliza's foot, so only my heel and toes actually came out. That clearly would not look like a ghost so I had to paint in the rest of a foot.
Next up was Mark, he wasn't interested in having his documented through picture so here is the end result.
When it is all dry put on the eyes with black paint, a sharpie, or use googly eyes. I didn't have googly eyes small enough so I just put on the eyes with a sharpie, I figured it would be a better chance of being round. I went ahead and cut our Happy Halloween on the Cricut. I wish I would have done a better job measuring, Eliza had me distracted. The words didn't fit like I had hoped they would.
I added a little bow for Eliza, and some ribbon to be able to hang it by.
I think from now on with Tutorial Tuesday I will start putting a little note at the bottom of what I would have done different.
What I would do different:
Pay better attention to the letter spacing
Buy a bigger piece of wood
I hope you enjoy this cheap, easy, adorable craft for Halloween! See ya next week.
