Homemade Mother's Day Gifts

Butterfly Footprint Flower Pots

For our baby's first Mother's Day, I decided she needed to make something cute with her footprints for her grandmas. I found an idea on Pinterest and decided I loved it! There were no directions for how to do it, but it seemed easy enough. So I made two butterfly footprint flower pots.

1. Paint the flower pots white with acrylic paint.

2. Mix your colors for the butterfly wings.

3. Find a baby. Carefully paint the baby's feet and make footprints to look like a butterfly. This is the hardest part. Also make sure the footprints are on opposite sides from how their feet are.

4. Paint bodies for the butterflies. Let dry. Then paint over the pot with matte finish Mod Podge. Let dry.

5. Label the bottom with a Sharpie. Add a pretty artificial flower arrangement (I do not recommend planting real flowers—water and soil may mess up the beautiful art). Voila! Project complete!
