Wooden Silhouette Decor.

What you’ll need:
-Piece of wood.
-Double sided tape.
-Paint and paintbrushes
How to do it:
-Go grab the little ones whose silhouettes you want to use. Put them in front of a window or white wall (something bright.) Snap a photo of them from the side. Be sure that they are looking directly ahead or your silhouette will not be very accurate. If you are using more than one child, it might help to set up a tripod so you will know how far away you were for each child’s photo – or else you will have to adjust image sizes later on.
**I created my silhouette layout in photoshop but, for those of you that don’t have photoshop, it’s just as easy without it:
-Print the silhouettes according to the size of the wood you chose.
-Cut out the first silhouette and trace the front of the face (this is where I used the double sided tape – so that it wouldn’t move around and the tracing would be accurate.)
-Cut and trace the second face (so that it connects with the first one) then move back 1/4″ and trace a second time. Repeat for the other faces.
-Paint in each silhouette. And you’re done!
