There are plenty of times where I try something I've seen on Pintrest and it fails, big time! These silhouettes were not one of those times. I was so pleased with how they came out. They were soooooo easy too!!! I took profile pictures of Logan and Megan and printed them on some photo paper before I left for the weekend. I picked up these wooded plaques at a big box store. They're so affordable. I already had the black and white acrylic paints so this project cost under $5. I love that!!! At the craft weekend I painted the plaques white. The good thing about acrylic paint is that it dries pretty fast! While the white was drying I cut out the profile pictures. Logan's was really easy to cut out. Megan's wasn't hard either, I was worried I'd be stuck cutting out every curl and strand of hair but it wasn't that way at all both went very quickly. Once the pictures were cute out I covered them in a couple layers of black acrylic paint, make sure to let them dry fully between each coat. Finally I used some tombow to stick it down on the plaque and then covered them with some Mod Podge. That's it!!! They're ready to hang and I just love them!!!! More projects fromt he craft weekend to come, check back all next week!!!
