Well, the new year is under way and the creative juices are flowing around here! I have been working on refreshing our upstairs hallway and actually, have many fun projects and additions to show you.
Today, though, I wanted to share the silhouettes of our family pets that I made to hang in the hallway. I think they turned out so cute and will be a long lasting tribute to our trio of furballs!
The three amigos (well, not exactly amigos, maybe I should call them the three "tolerators!" - as in they tolerate each other, but that's about it).
This was such a fun & easy project to do. I wish I had "how-to" pics, but I am sure the instructions are easy enough to follow without visuals. The hardest part was getting a side profile picture of each of them - I took tons before I found three that would work!
Then, I enlarged them to the size I wanted on my computer and printed them out on copy paper. I cut them out, and traced them onto black scrapbooking paper. I cut those out, glued them onto white cardstock, and placed them into $3.97 black frames from WalMart - talk about thrifty! How fun to do this with your kids, also? Classic.
I am sure there are other, more "correct" methods of making silhouettes, but this one worked just fine for me! I will show you how they look in the hallway soon.
Thanks for stopping by,
