Baby Footprint and Handprint Kitchen Towels (footprint art!)

So I’ve been super remiss on posting at all this whole year! And what a year it has been. Our little man is 11 months old and I’ll be honest, until August I really didn’t do much art OR crafts (baby life)…. but for Christmas presents we got on the bandwagon of footprint and handprint gifts. Horray for Pinterest ideas! We did kitchen tea towels for the grandparents and parents…

Some were plain foot prints, others I converted into birds, etc.


  1. Kitchen tea towels (Amazon pack)
  2. Acrylic paint
  3. soft sponge brushes (Michael’s)
  4. Paint brushes to add in details
  5. clipboard and extra clip
  6. piece of cardboard
  7. baby wipes!

Basically he was awesome in his highchair with some food to distract. I set up the towel on the clip board, inserted a piece of cardboard under the first layer to prevent soaking through, and a clip at the bottom to keep in place. Then painted his foot with the soft sponge brush and made a print bringing the clipboard up to his foot! Was able to clean his foot easily with baby wipes and then some water and paper towels. After they were all dry (and the little man was napping) I could go back in with the other details!

Besides Christmas gifts these can make great gifts for grandparents for birthdays or Mother’s day…
