How to Make This

Our Work | November 7, 2009

I love the look of silhouettes. I thought that our small family would look cute hung up in our new home. Here are the way easy steps to making some for yourself:

#1 Take a profile picture, print it on card-stock and then cut out the silhoutte. Get as much detail as you can in. I was even able to capture my babies eyelashes.

#2 Paint them black. I think if you wanted you could really paint them any color. You could even paste the picture to some patterned paper for an artsy look.

#3 Glue the dried picture to some card-stock and frame. That’s it!! I got these frames at Ikea and I already had the other supplies. So this project was cheap as well as easy.
