I'm so excited to pull out our table runner from last year! The kids have grown SO much already.
When we went to SeaWorld over the summer they had a Handimal Art for sale. They have the family put their hand print on a canvas and they make animals out of them. It's really cute and I really wanted to do one. I still want to do ducks for our bathroom. I've seen places that make art out of children's hand/foot prints for their room. I love it!
I decided to make a hand Turkey table runner for Thanksgiving. I am not very crafty or artistic, so I was a little worried on how it would turn out.
Table runner - I was hoping Walmart would have a plain cheap one (I didn't have time to go other places to look). I found this one for $13.
Fabric Paint (Brown, Red, Yellow, White, Black, Orange)
Paper plate (or something to make a palette for mixing colors
Hands of each member of the family
I marked the center with one of Sissy's hair clips.
I mixed brown and white to make a lighter brown for the turkeys and mostly because I knew I needed a lot of brown. I needed to stretch it further. I painted on our hands and had each person put their hand print on the table runner.
