How to make a footprint heart

Before beginning to make your footprint heart make sure you have all your supplies ready. When it comes to painting your babies feet make sure you have wipes or a bowl of water nearby ready for the clean up. It might be worth reading our top tips for taking baby footprints before you get started.

1. Draw or trace a heart onto contact paper and cut it out. The heart needs to be large enough to fit your babies footprints inside. 
2. Stick the heart shape in the centre of your canvas and paint the rest of the canvas in your chosen colour.
3. Wait for the paint to dry and then remove the contact paper. this will leave a white heart shape on your canvas.
4. Paint your babies feet and then print them in the heart shape. Put your babies heels towards the bottom of the heart at an angle to create a footprint heart shape.

Wait for the heart footprints to dry and then hang up your beautiful heart footprint canvas!
