Make Beautiful Memories with Plaster Casting!

Baby Love Sign

Begin by carefully sanding down the tops of the ankles so that when inverted, the feet are about the same height and sit flat on the wooden plaque.  Be very careful.  You do not want to ruin these tiny little feet.

Be sure to add a hanger to the back of the plaque before starting this project.  Cut fabric a little larger than the plaque.  Paint the front of the plaque with a layer of Mod Podge.  Lay the fabric over the plaque and add a second layer of Mod Podge on top of the fabric.  Allow it to dry.

Sitcom 2 step option

Use a craft knife to cut the fabric to the shape of the plaque.  Paint all edges and back of plaque with two coats of white acrylic paint.

Line up the letters about 1″ above the bottom of the plaque, leaving a space for the V shaped feet.  Glue in place with E6000 glue.

Set the feet in place in the shape of a V, and glue down with E6000 Glue.  You may have to add some props to hold them in place while the glue dries as I did in the photo above.  Glue a silk daisy to the left of the L.

When the glue has dried,  add several coats of Polymer Sculpey Glaze to the feet to protect them.

And you now have a beautiful memory to decorate with.  This will be a fun gift to give to my daughter when we make our way back to Georgia.  By then, that little baby will not be as little anymore.  But we have a great way to remember how tiny she once was!
