My crafty friend Eva, remember she made her own headboard, whipped these together!
I love how well her daughter's curls came out! So cute!
And the colorful paper in the back really makes it fun!
She even made one of her sweet puppy Bailey! Can you even stand the cuteness!
Here they are perched on her bookshelves in her family room.
Now welcome to my house! I made my kids silhouettes to hang below some chair prints I got from Annechovie (I have a slight obsession with her stuff, my husband makes fun that pretty soon we will have a chair print in every room in our house!)
And here is my friend Kasey's daughter's silhouette. Doesn't this look SO professional! Mine stink in comparison...I need to try my hand at it again. Maybe invite Eva and Kasey over to help!
Kasey wrote out her directions on how to achieve this look below.
I don't have a fancy photoshop type program, so I took a side shot of Ellie and printed it out (in the size I wanted the silhouette to be).
Cut it out (with very sharp kitchen scissors)
Traced it on black cardstock from the craft store (62 cents for a large piece)
Cut the silhouette out (again with the kitchen scissors)
Pasted it on a piece of white card stock (62 cents)
Framed it (Home Goods around $7)
Don't you just love how hers looks in that ornate frame!
It is the perfect way to show off the simple yet elegant silhouette! Love it!
If you don't think you can handle that I found this great website you could play around with. I saw this over at Oak Ridge Revival who I'm excited to announce I will be doing a blog exchange with this Thursday!!! Click here to go make your own family silhouette!
