The Supplies Needed for this Christmas DIY Baby Craft

- Craft paints – red, white, black, green, brown and gold.
- Brushes – sponge brush, thin detailing brush, paint pens and permanent black markers.
Getting Baby Involved
Paint your babie’s sweet, little foot and try to do this quickly! Your little squirmer is likely to make a bit of a mess, so do this footprint craft project in a mess-approved zone.
This footprint is going to be you reindeer head.
You will use your artistic skills to add the antlers and handwriting to personalize this diy baby Christmas artwork.

How to turn your baby’s footprint art into a christmas reindeer
To make this adorable little foot print transform into a Christmas reindeer, you will need to pull out your inner artist!
Simply paint or draw the antlers on, copy mine if you want!
To make the ornaments…
Paint your round ornament shape (let dry) and then add a layer of hot glue on top for a 3D effect. Sprinkle with glitter.
They turned out really cool and gave the artwork a lot of dimension.
Use stencils or free-hand your babie’s name on the artwork. I used a permanent marker for my hand lettering.
Hand lettering tips:
- Write out your babie’s name or the words you want to use in pencils first, then trace with marker. Use a thin line marker for your first outline, then go back over and thicken every down-stroke and Voila, you have just designed a hand-lettered font!
