Project: Paw Print Art

Paw print art! You could even do this with kids hands, feet, or little noses!

What You Need

  • canvas
  • paint
  • bowl
  • paws

First – get your canvas and paint ready. I did this outside and used an everyday household paint.

The best part about this little project is that the deck (it’s old and rundown) got extra paw print marks on it before I could clean up the pups. Oh, and one of Lily’s paw prints on the hot tub cover. I just love her.

Once you decide where you want the paw prints to go – dip the paw in the paint and then onto the canvas.

This is pretty easy with my pups since I can move the canvas close to them and once I lift a paw, they can’t really go anywhere. If you’ve got a wee pup, you might need a second set of hands.

Let it dry!

I didn’t mind that the paint went on pretty thick, yet it did take a day to fully dry. Just be careful that you don’t squish the paint if it’s thick – it’ll ooze out and make a mess. Might even ruin your art and that wouldn’t be much fun.

Now put up your art. I put mine up in our bathroom – so adorable.
