I love displaying my girls arts and crafts around our home, but my favorite crafts to display are the ones that have their handprint or footprints on them. We made a cute Thanksgiving Turkey Canvas Craft that I hung all Fall and we got so many compliments from family members. Well, my wall looked a little bare so we decided to make some Valentine’s Day Kids Handprint and Footprint LOVE Canvas Art to hang.
Materials needed to create your Love Canvas Art:
- White canvas
- Pink, red, and white acrylic paint
- Paint brush
- Little hands and feet
Step One: The first thing I had my girls do was paint their white canvases any color they wanted and they both decided on pink. Once they had painted the entire canvas we let them dry over night.
Step Two: Using red paint I first added the girls handprint to the upper right hand corner of the canvas. (I apologize for the lack of pictures, it was a bit difficult with little painted hands and our white furniture 🙂 )
Step Three: I then painted their feet and printed them on the canvas in a “V” shape form.
Step Four: Using a thin brush and red paint I helped the girls each write the letter L and letter E to complete the word LOVE on their canvas.
Step Five: The girls also wanted to add a small little heart to their handprint. So using white paint we added a small heart at the bottom of their red handprint. I think it turned out really cute!
Step Six: Hang up in your home and enjoy!
I think these would also make a great Valentine’s Day gift for grandparents and even daddy or mommy’s office!
Don’t you think these would look awesome hung up in your home?
