I'm excited to show you two different DIY projects that are easy and inexpensive to do with your pet. The first project is capturing their paw prints on paper. The second is making decorative art work for your house, while using those paw prints.
Tag Board (any size, the bigger the more paw prints you can get)
Acrylic Paint (any color)
Cuter or Scissors
Picture Frames (any sizes, as many as you want)
Rub On Decals (you can find at your local art and craft store)
Pictures (as many as you want)
We put the tag board on a small cardboard table outside. Then poured some paint on the lid to use as a "tray." After dipping my paw in the paint, my mom just played around with different placement, pressures, and amount of paint. The best part was afterwards, I got to go swimming to "wash" the paint off my paw and it all came off with no problems.
Once inside we took out the glass from the picture frames and placed it just right on the tag board. Then, using the cutter we traced the edge of the glass to get the right cut.
After the paw prints were cut out and placed in the frames, we applied the decals. They say:
"A true friend leaves paw prints on your heart." "My Dog."
Looking back we should have chosen a different color of paint so the letters would pop out more, but maybe next time.
Since we had so many decals left over we put them to use on my treat jar.
And there you have it easy, inexpensive project you can do to showcase your dog.
Cute idea. Can I ask where you found the square frames? I've been looking for some but haven't really been able to find any I like. These are just what I'm looking for.ReplyDelete
