Footprint Ghost Sign

This time with my baby girl is going by WAY TOO FAST! I'm trying to just enjoy every stage but they pass all too soon. I wanted a way to preserve this time with her (and, of course, my boys) so I made this footprint ghost sign that I can pull out every Halloween...

I just sanded a random piece of wood we had in our house. Then I painted it black. I covered each of my children's feet with white paint and put their footprints on the board. Then I took some more white paint and filled in where their arches were and touched up any other spots. After the white paint was dry, I painted on ghost faces and added "Boo!" and "2014" in orange. To preserve it, I will spray it with a paint sealer.

All-in-all a simple project that took me one afternoon to complete, but it's something I will enjoy for years to come!

I’ll be linking up to Works for Me Wednesday, Mom’s Library, Clever Chicks Blog Hop, Share It Saturday, The Mommy Club, Fine Craft GuildWhatever Goes Wednesday.
