We love Footprint and Handprint Crafts and this holiday mistletoe craft is no exception. It is sure to become a family keepsake your going to love for years to come. We have a full tutorial my kids made and a free craft template to make your craft come together easily for Christmas. We took the traditional saying, “Kiss Me Under the Mistletoe,” and changed it to, “Kiss Me Under My Mistletoes,” because some little feet are too cute you just want to kiss them even if a sprig of mistletoe isn’t in site. (If you are more traditional the template also includes “THE” mistletoe version too). While you are at it, check out our Darling Rudolf the Reindeer Footprint Craft too!

Mistletoe template (Free download & Printable Directions available at the end of this post)
Green craft paint (When making footprint crafts we prefer to use Acrylic Paint because the print shows up better)
White paper (We find that using Cardstock Paper makes our footprints better for crafting with because the paper is thicker than printer paper)
Glue Dots or glue (My kids used glue dots to make it easier to attach the bow and no drying time needed)
Paper towels or baby wipes (optional)

Kiss Me Under My Mistletoe Footprint Craft
Watch our video to craft along with us or continue below. The directions are also included with the free template so you can download and print them.
Make one footprint per foot on white paper and let them dry. For Babys foot, we actually made a whole page of footprints and then picked out our favorite ones to craft with. Making footprints can get a little messy so have baby wipes or paper towels on hand.
Cut out the footprints. We like to leave a small white edge around them.
Glue footprints to the craft template with the heels at the top and toes pointed down towards the bottom of the page. We used glue dots to make it quick, easy, and neat (no glue puddles) since we were planning on framing our craft.
Glue bows on. Again, we used glue dots.
Your craft is done. You can choose to put them in a frame or turn them into a card by attaching a piece of paper to the back. Whatever you choose I hope you have fun making them and a happy holidays! Thanks for crafting with us.
