Silhouettes

Photobucket

This was a favorite project I did last year! Easy and so customizable! Here is what you’ll need…

scrapbook paper
paint
a square canvas
profile photo
modge podge
ribbon
flower for adorning

i

First select Scrapbook paper that coordinates with the room or style you are going for. I did mine to match my girls room. Measure and cut four strips to cover the edges and one large square to cover the front.

Paint the edges a coordinating color.

Using Modge Podge, glue on all the paper being sure to smooth it out as best you can and eliminating bubbles.

h

Print off a profile photo of the person you are want to create a silhouette of. I wanted to adjust the size so I made a photo copy of it and reduced the size.

Cut it out and trace it onto a piece of black card stock.

Modge podge it onto your canvas. Next apply a coat of Modge Podge on top of the silhouette and the entire canvas covering the front and edges to create a seal.

y

Once the canvas is dried you can now add a flower with a hot glue gun. Cut and add a ribbon to hang it!

One more project compleate!

    I love this, Rebecca! It looks hard – - is it for those of us who aren't crafty? I'd really love to try this on my boys!
