DIY Silhouette Pictures

Years ago I had a silhouette from my firstborn done. Now I have two more children and wanted to decorate our house with everyone’s picture. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find someone professional for the job and ended up doing it myself.

Here is what you will need for it:


– printed silhouette photo off your child
– 1 pencil
– 1 blue hand copy paper
– black craft paper
– white craft paper
– clue stick
– 1 frame

materials for kids keepsake


– take a silhouette photo of your child in front of a white wall

– adjust the size if needed and print it in black and white
– place the blue hand copy paper in between the black craft paper and printed picture
– trace the outline of your child’s silhouette with a pencil
