Mother’s Day is right around the corner. Mom is your best friend and guide through life. She is the one who is always there when you need her. I love making gifts because they’re way more personal. There’s a fun DIY Footprint Buttlerfly Canvas tutorial a little later on.
Another important motherly relationship is Grandma. Seeing the relationship between my daughter and her Grandparents is so sweet. They have such a special bond and I love watching them interact.
We decided to make a fun craft that Grandma can keep forever. A Footprint Butterfly Canvas is perfect because it’s like a moment frozen in time. She will continue to get older and it’s a powerful visual comparing the change in the footprint as she grows up. And little feet are just so cute!
The finishing touch is a Hallmark greeting card. Walmart is again featuring a collection of Hallmark Signature cards for Mother’s Day, a line of premium, handcrafted greeting cards.
Walmart has a huge selection of Hallmark greeting cards for Mother’s Day!
Stella wanted to be a part of the card picking process too, of course!
After we found the perfect card, we grabbed some supplies to create our Footprint Butterfly Canvas crafts for the grandmas.
You will need a canvas, one or two paint colors, a thin paint brush, puff paint, a sponge or sponge brush.
Here are the steps to make your own Footprint Butterfly Canvas:
First, we painted her feet with two different colored paints.
When you place the feet on the canvas they will be opposite (left on the right and vice versa).
In the middle you will draw the body of the butterfly.
Then personalize it! For ours we wrote “Happy Mother’s Day <3 Stella”
It pairs perfectly with the Hallmark Mother’s Day card (and maybe even some fresh flowers.)
