Hey Guys! Its Emmy here and I’m so excited to be taking over the blog to show you how we did this Easy DIY $5 children’s silhouette framed. The idea for these silhouette frames came to life when we had no clue what to do with a random, empty wall in our new teen hangout room upstairs. So my mom and I went downstairs to our guestroom closet to look through the many frames my mom has. (It’s a LOT of frames). When we got down there we saw these cute, little frames my mom got at Walmart a few years back with the intent to do this very project. So we grabbed some paper and a few Sharpies and went to work. I now present an Easy DIY $5 children’s silhouette framed art!collage of three silhouette frames

Here are the supplies. You will need…

STEP ONE: To start off you take a picture of who you are wanting to make a silhouette out of standing sideways against a solid color wall. You then send these pictures to your personal PC.

STEP TWO: Open the email that you send yourself with your pictures and take the “sample picture” that is already in the frame and hold it up to the picture to help you size your photo. You want to shrink down the photo on your laptop or computer until it fits into the space of the silhouette that came framed in the oval Walmart frame.

STEP THREE: Take a piece of cardstock and hold it up against your computer. Trace the outline of the picture with a pencil.

STEP FOUR: Now take your pencil silhouettes and cut them out in a circular shape that matches the frame.

STEP FIVE: Once that is finished take the thin Sharpie and outline the silhouette. After you’re done with that, take the thick Sharpie and color in the silhouette. Make sure you make continuous lines in the same direction.

Final step: Frame your silhouette’s in your cute Walmart frames; hang them; then DM us on Instagram or tag us in a photo because you know we want to see how cute these turned out!
