Easy, fast, no sew silhouette project

It’s Monday, it’s snowing, and it’s cold. Perfect for a fun and easy craft.

Silhouettes. I love Silhouettes. They have such a fun vintage feel to them. I wanted to hang a silhouette of Danica on her wall since her room has such a vintage feel to it. I thought long and hard about how I wanted to create it, and I finally decided on fabric.

I bought an old wooden frame a while ago at an antique store. I love cool looking frames, and I was looking for just the right thing to put in this one. I took a picture of the side of Danica’s face, and had my son edit it in photo shop. I printed it out on paper and cut it out. Then I picked some fabric. I chose a light gray for the background, hot glued it to the back of the frame, and picked some black velvet for the silhouette. I pinned the paper to the black fabric and cut it out. Then I took some fabric tac and glued the silhouette fabric to the gray fabric. Voila, ready to hang. So cute. It was so easy to do. It probably only took about a half hour to make, and I love the different texture of the fabric hanging on her wall.




I'm Erin, a busy mom of three, chauffeur, cook, housekeeper, and wanna be decorator. I love old movies, good books, and a daily trip to Lowes. We have recently bought a new we are fixing up and changing everything. This blog is to record our renovating journey. This is not the first house we have done. Actually, it is our third. My husband and I love a project. Any project. We both love working on our home, have the same taste, (which is great), and love working and re purposing things on our budget. We can show you how to put together a high end and creative look without breaking the bank. Taking something old and recreating it into something new and exciting for any room is my passion. Hope you enjoy this decorating journey with us!
