Le Chat Noir Inspire Footprint Craft

    *This post contains affiliate links*

We have been enjoying making fall & Halloween crafts these past few weeks. Last night, we wanted to keep the theme going. We wanted to make a footprint black cat, but after we began another idea formed. The cat reminded me of the poster art Le Chat Noir, so we took that inspiration to make a couple of artist-inspired footprint crafts using my daughter’s cute little tootsies. Paint your child’s foot in black paint & press it into the middle of a yellow piece of paper or canvas.

Paint in the ears, the whites of the eyes & a paw in the front.

Paint the bottom of the paper 1/3 of the way up in red. Paint a series of circles inside of each other behind the cat’s head.

Add lines & dots to the circles to form a design. Paint in the rest of the face & add body details with a shade of gray. Add whiskers & claws to finish off your picture.

Paint around the yellow in a darker shade of blue. Paint in black swirls & accents in the blue. Paint white & light blue swirls around the yellow.

Outline the top of the double curve in yellow & mimic another yellow curve parallel to it.

Paint in between the swirls in oranges, light blue, white & more yellows until you have finished the sky. Paint in the screaming face on the man to finish of your painting.
