I think most elementary classrooms have done silhouette crafts. Sitting infront of the projector having the teacher trace your silhouette to decorate as you please.

Here I’ve taken this classic crafting staple and have given it a elegant twist.


What you’ll need:

  • Profile shots of your subjects (I’ve printed and cut mine on regular printer paper). Don’t be afraid to get the pets involved!
  • Scissors
  • Cardstock
  • Book pages
  • pencil
  • Stick glue

1. Trace your silhouettes onto the book pages



2. Cut out all silhouettes and arrange on cardstock


3. Glue into place and press using a large book until dry. Once dry your silhouettes will be ready for framing.



From here you can add any captions or frame for hanging! I love these cute little silhouettes of my household all together.
