Silhouettes

I have been seeing silhouette profiles everywhere lately.  I did a weekly discovery post on them a couple of months ago.    I just thought I would show you how my family turned out!!!

This was such an easy and inexpensive way to decorate my living room.

Supplies:
Digital Camera
Printer
Pencil
Scissors
Adhesive
Black Cardstock
White Cardstock
Picture Frames (I purchased mine from a thrift store and painted them black)

What I did.....
1.  I took profile pictures of my family next to a plain wall.
2.  I uploaded the pictures to my computer and printed them the size I wanted them.
3.  I cut out the profiles
4.  I traced my cutouts on my black cardstock.
5.  I cut out my profiles again.
6.  I cut the white card stock to the size of my frame (most 8x10)
7.  I used adhesive to adhere the profile to the cardstock.
8.  Stick it in a frame, hang it on your wall and enjoy!
