crafted :: DIY silhouettes

crafted :: DIY silhouettes, originally uploaded by earthchick.

In early December, this tute for making your own silhouette pictures was floating around Pinterest (if you would like to fall down the rabbit hole that is Pinterest, but need an invitation, let me know – I think I still have five).

What a great project! Very easy to make, and such a personal gift. My boys were happy to pose for these pictures, and excited to watch as I cut them out. I made these for my parents for Christmas, and they were a huge hit. Honestly, this is one of my favorite things I’ve ever made. Soon, I hope to make a pair for myself.

  1. I would love one too! I’ve looked on Etsy for someone to do silhouettes (someday I want one of each of us above one of our mantels!), and they are SO expensive! I’d love to be able to do it myself, thanks for the links. Yours look fantastic!

  2. Brilliant idea. I love it and will put it away in a corner of my mind where it will no doubt get lost before I can follow through…but still.
