It is no secret that I love footprint crafts. My latest footprint crafts have been inspired by famous works of art. Last night, I felt inspired by Van Gogh’s Starry Night. I was ready to start our Starry night project and then passed by this gumball machine at the house we are staying at during our home build.
This sparked a whole new inspiration.
Footprint Gumball Craft
Paint the heel in white & the rest of the foot in red. Press in onto a piece of paper.
Paint the gumball machine top with red & silver paint.
Paint the dial & gumball door on with the silver & add details with black.
Have your child dip their little finger into different colored paint and press into the white to make the gumballs. Cute, quick & easy!
After my detour, I went back to my main event.
Footprint Starry Night
I painted my daughter’s foot in black & then pressed it onto a piece of blue paper.
I used a Sharpie to draw in the rest of the curvy black structure depicted by the foot .
I used the Sharpie again to draw in the village at the bottom of the scene.
I quickly painted the drawing. It didn’t need to be perfect.
Next I painted in the mountains.
And then began adding in the stars & swirls in the sky.
I cannot wait to decorate our new home with all of our new works of art.
