How to do it
- Choose a colour from the Reeves Acrylic paint range and paint two paper feet cut-outs covering the entire surface. You can paint the feet in the same colour or you can try painting stripes! Allow the paint to dry completely.
- Unroll the synthetic grass and lay face down on a flat surface. Trace the outline of the A3 foamboard on the back of the grass and carefully cut it out using scissors.
- Apply glue around the edge of the foamboard. Then carefully place the grass on top and apply slight pressure to ensure adhesion.
- Select a contrast colour and paint small circles on each toe. Once dry, use a permanent marker and label the toes with numbers 1 through to 10.
- Secure the feet onto the grass surface with the glue gun. Apply slight pressure to ensure adhesion.
- Select the letters from the foam pack in a variety of colours for the words you want to spell out. It can be the words “Left” “Right”, a child’s name or even a fun saying. Let your imagination run wild!. Peel the backing off the letters and stick directly onto the grass under each foot.
