Just wanted to share this Silhouette Art project with you. This would be a fun project to do with an older child – I love silhouettes and made up this project recently for a friend. This would look great on a child’s bedroom wall – it is so colourful and fun!
- Find a thrifted or vintage frame, remove the glass, and spray paint it in a bright colour.
- Line the frame with some damask or monochromatic fabric cut to size.
- Take a profile photo of your child, enlarge it to the right size, and then trace the outline onto appliqué film (such as steam a seam).
- Press the appliqué film to the back of some black homespun (following manufacturer’s directions), cut out the silhouette image, and then fuse with your iron onto the centre of the frame.
