Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I hope that everyone is enjoying their day & having fun with their families. Tomorrow kicks off the beginning of the Christmas season and I could not be more excited. I love the holiday season. Everything about it, the sounds, the smells & the lights just make me happy.
The holidays for me are all about making memories. Before having my daughter, I had a perfectly coordinated tree with fancy holiday knick knacks. Those have slowly been replaced through the years with homemade ornaments & I adore it. Some of my favorites are made out of my daughter’s foot and hand prints. This year I wanted to make a special stocking for our new home & new mantle.
I purchased an inexpensive stocking for a couple of dollars. I am sure you could pick one up at the Dollar Store.
I painted my daughter’s foot in white & pressed it onto the stocking. I used black paint & dotted on the eyes & mouth.
I cut up some felt pieces for the hat & scarf. I used a Sharpie to stripe the hat and scarf and added glue and glitter for a little holiday sparkle.
I glued the hat and gloves into place and added a pom pom to the end of the hat. I glued on a nose and buttons.
We finished off our snowman with pipe cleaner arms.
It came out so cute. I can’t wait to hang it up.
Thank you as always for stopping by. Please follow us on Facebook as well.
Love your footprint crafts and like you so excited for the Christmas and holiday season to officially kick off tomorrow, too. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!! 🙂
Thank you, Janine. The same to you. Hugs!
