Create a Butterfly Footprint Pot For Your Flowers

You can create this cute project for your front yard with your child's footprint. It's a great way to document the adorable small footprint and makes a great gift for a Grandma or Mom!


  • One Terra Cotta Pot
  • White Spray Paint
  • CLear Sealer Spray Paint
  • Black Acrylic Paint
  • Acrylic Paint, Your choice of colors
  • Paintbrush


  1. Spray the terra cotta pot white on the inside and out. Set aside to dry.
  2. Repeat this process for a second coat.
  3. With a paintbrush, swirl one color of paint on the bottom of the child's foot, then swirl another to completely cover the bottom of the foot.
  4. Press the entire foot firmly to the side of the white pot.
  5. Repeat this process with the other foot and press onto the pot leaving a small gap between prints.
  6. Allow to dry.
  7. Paint a black line between the footprints for the butterfly body, the paint two curls at the top for the antenna.
  8. You may choose to add another set of footprints if they are very small, or just create one on your pot.
