i, like i'm sure most of you, have been drooling over all the custom silhouette pictures of your kids.
i wanted to ask for those for christmas, but i wanted shopping money too.
well, i am now the proud owner of some cute new clothes so my selfishness won.
now i also have some silhouette pictures thanks to my crafty (a.k.a cheap) bum.
here's the supplies you'll need:
photo frame ($10.00 on sale at joanns)
black paint/paint brush
picture of your kid (the hardest part)
take your kids picture.
print it (my frame is an 8 x 10 size, so i printed the picture in a 5 x 7 size)
i printed it on cardstock as well, so the paper would be thicker.
cut your picture out...being very careful around the sweet little face parts.
paint the cut out picture black.
i then used my spray adhesive to adhere it to the white background (sidenote--my white background is just the piece of paper that comes with the frame...i just turned it over)
i will post a picture later of all 4 of them, hung on the wall (after mr. anderson does a little handy work).
this craft literally took me 30 minutes to do.
30 minutes people!
now i have sweet memories of my little people...and new clothes.
everybody is happy.
