Hi, Everybody! I hope you are all having a great weekend, and that it's as beautiful and sunny where you are as it is here in New Jersey this weekend! I have a really cute and easy project to share with you today! I love silhouette art, I just think it's so pretty, elegant and timeless, so I wanted to make some for our bedroom. Here is how I made them...
BLACK & WHITE SILHOUETTE PLAQUES
Supplies you will need: Two wooden plaques, white spray paint, black all purpose paint and a paintbrush, black ribbon, hot glue and glue gun and Mod Podge.
For these silhouettes, I bought two 5x7 inch oval wooden plaques, but you can use whatever shape plaque you want. I spray painted them white (if your plaques are glossy you can sand them down a little first); you can do a couple of coats of spray paint so they are coated completely. Once they were dry, I drew my silhouettes on them using a pencil (you can either draw actual silhouettes or find examples online, print and cut them out and trace around them). Next, using some black paint, I carefully painted the silhouettes. I let them dry, and then painted two coats of Mod Podge on top of the whole plaque (paint the sides too), just so that the both the spray paint and the black paint were sealed well. Then, I made a loop out of black ribbon (to hang the plaque) and attached it to the back of the plaque using hot glue. To finish it off, I glued a bow to the top of the loop!
These would make really cute gifts too, for a bridal shower, a wedding or a housewarming gift! It's a really fun, easy and quick project that's under $10 to make! Hope I've all inspired you to make your own silhouette art! Happy Crafting, Everyone! Enjoy your weekend!
