Easy Ghost Halloween Footprint Craft
For this simple craft, I was able to get everything I needed at Dollar Tree which made it a frugal craft as well as an easy one! You may not be aware but you can order online at DollarTree.com if you don’t have a store near you.
Everything I bought was a dollar and I had plenty of supplies left afterward for more crafts and activities during October.
What You’ll Need for the Footprint Craft:
- Black Poster Board (I got a package for 5 for $1 in case of accidents)
- White finger paint
- Various Halloween themed stickers
- Spooky Googly Eyes
- Halloween Pompoms (if desired)
- Cover foot in white washable (!!) fingerpaint and press gently onto the black poster board.
- Allow the paint to dry before adding eyes, and stickers to decorate the background.
The Finished Masterpiece!
You can display the picture in a frame throughout the season or make several and use them as Halloween party invitations or cards.
