Nowadays, just like everyone else, my decorating budget is nonexistent and since I have been in the mood to decorate, I have to be rather thrifty. I have been wanting to get silhouettes done of the boys FOREVER! I've had a spot on the wall for them and everything. It has somehow always been put on the backburner. Well today was the day! I decided I was gonna make a silhouette and hang it up no matter how it looked. Keep in mind these were my first ones. I will probably end up doing them again on better paper, but for now they are pretty darn good.
I had these 8x10 frames that I got at Hobby Lobby for $2.72. Yes you are seeing correctly. They had been $19.99. I love them. Not usually a big fan of gold, but in some places I like it, and this is one.
All I did was print off a 5x7 profile of each of the boys on the printer. I then cut it out. The back side of the picture is white, so I just glued the color side of the picture to a black matte.
As an afterthought I put the boys initials on the bust with some rub on stickers. This is what they look like all finished and hanging in my hallway.
