Our pets are our family and we cherish every moment we have with them! They leave paw prints on your heart. The perfect way to have a lasting memory of your pet is a Paw Print Keepsake Frame! It’s a fun crafty activity for you and your family to do with your furry friend. This beautiful piece of art can be featured as a home decoration, decorative ornament, or even a gift for a pet owner.
Below is a step by step guide to this project!
1) A paper plate
2) A paint brush
4) Paper Towel or a Junk Towel
6) A pack of multi-colored tissue paper (optional)
7) A dog! 😉
Step 1 – Get your dog and all of your supplies set up outside.
Step 2 – Pour a little bit of paint onto your paper plate and use the paint brush to spread it around. Make sure you’ve got enough paint spread on the plate to cover your dog’s whole paw.
Step 3 – Put the plate on the ground and guide his/her foot into the paint. Press gently on your dog’s paw to make sure you’re getting paint on all of the pads.
Step 4 – Lift your dog’s paw, slide the plate out, and slide the paper into place. Make sure you position the paper so that the paw print will be where you want it to be. Gently press your dog’s paw onto the cardstock. You may find that there is too much paint on his/her paw, making the print come out messier than you want. If that’s the case, go ahead and try again on a fresh piece of cardstock. You may want to use a paper towel to blot some of the paint off of your dog’s paw before putting it onto the paper.
Step 5 – Using a towel, gently wipe off your dog’s paw to remove any left-over paint.
