Blog Swap with Naptime Crafters

What better way to start the weekend than to introduce you to a talented blogger?!  Amy's blog, Naptime Crafters, caught my eye with her adorable projects.  You'll love her ideas!

Wow I'm excited to be blog swapping with Alison- she is so creative! I really can't get enough :)
I'm Amy and I blog over at naptime crafters. I'd love to have you come visit:) I'm a SHAM to my adorable little miss. During her very brief naps I love to bust out the craft supplies and get busy!! Here's our latest- little miss helped:) 
Materials:
  • Halloween Paper
  • Black Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Googly Eyes
  • Tacky Glue
  • Chubby little hand:)
1. Prepare your work area. I started with a big piece of orange paper in case it took more than one try: surprisingly it didn't- I seriously couldn't believe it!! Make sure you protect your work surface too

I also stripped little miss down just in case and threw an old t-shirt on to protect my clothes too

2. Paint your kiddo's fingers on one hand- try not to get the thumb since you won't need it.

3. Make 2 hand prints on your orange paper. I repainted her hand in between. Try not to worry about those little smudges- you know grandma will love them:)

4. Paint in a black spider body.

5. Let your spider dry and then cut it out- I decided on a pretty wonky shape. ┬┐Add some googly eyes with a bit of tacky glue. Add your spider cutout to a folded pieces of Halloween cardstock and you're done.
*If you want to stick this cutey in the mail I think it takes extra postage since it's not flat...
Happy Halloween! Looking for some more fall fun? You can find these Halloween projects over at naptime crafters:

    What a great idea! I'm going to do this and plan on doing every year until the boys are too big for me to make them do it :-) I think it will be fun to save them each year and than display them all together as they grow!

    I have a 14mo. grandson. This would be a great craft to do with him. I've been thinking a lot about things to do with him that will stimulate his imagination and creativity. Thanks!
