Hello! I am so excited to be participating in the Three Cheers for the Red, White & Blue #ultimateredwhiteandblue round up today (organized by the amazing Abbey from The Cards We Drew) with 110 of your favorite bloggers! Yes, 110 bloggers! Yay! So you’ll want to keep reading because I’ll have links to all of their posts. Annnnd I’m sharing an adorable Footprint & Handprint Flag for your kiddos to make! So if you needed an idea for the 4th of July we have got you covered! ha! 😉 So keep reading! 🙂
I saw a flag similar to this one on Hobby Lobby’s facebook page. I knew it would be so simple to make with supplies I already had on hand. I’m so glad we did! It turned out so cute! 🙂
First ~ you’ll paint your canvas a light gray color. Let dry.
Then I traced a composition book that looked about the size I needed for the top square with a pencil. Then I used a ruler to measure out & draw some stripes. The good thing about using a pencil is that you can erase all these lines later. 😉
So this is what it ended up looking like after I was finished drawing the lines.
OK…now here comes the messy part! ha! I put some black garbage bags down to protect the floor. Then we used my son’s feet to make the stripes with the red & white paint.
Then we used his hands to make the blue part of our flag! Looks like he is having fun, doesn’t it? ha! 😉
After the paint had dried completely we erased the pencil lines, and now we have a cute flag to decorate for the 4th of July! 🙂 It also makes a super cute photo prop, too. 🙂
Now check out the ultimate red, white & blue round up below! #ultimateredwhiteandblue
