Some links below may be affiliate links which means that you do not pay anymore however a portion of your purchase will go to support this site. I also may have received some or all of the products below free of charge. All opinions and projects are always my own.
- Wood Picture Frame (one with plenty of space like this one)
- Craft Paint in the Color of Your Choice (for the frame)
- White Craft Paint
- Black Paint Pen
- Carrot Snowman Nose
- Red Pom Poms
- Candy Cane Pipe Cleaner
- Hot Glue and Glue Gun
- Paint Brush
Start by painting your frame in the color of your choice. Give it a couple of coats and be sure to get the sides as well as the front. Allow to dry completely before continuing. Once dry, add your baby or toddler’s footprint. Apply white paint to the bottom of their foot then press it well onto the frame surface. Allow the print to dry before continuing.
Then add on eyes, a mouth, and buttons with a black paint pen.
To glue on the carrot nose, first snip the end off with a pair of scissors then hot glue into place.
For the snowman’s ear muffs, you will need one candy cane pipe cleaner and two red pom poms.
Cut to size and then add into place with hot glue.
Finish off your frame by adding the name and date of the child with the black paint pen.
