[ diy silhouettes + giveaway reminder ]

I KNOW, silhouettes have been around for awhile but I just don't get tired of them.



I love the idea of creating your own silhouettes of your family to display, including Fido. If you want to try your hand at it, check out this great tutorial over at The Shabby Nest.


Happy weekend everyone and don't forget to enter my blogiversary giveaway by Sunday. I'll be back on Monday to announce the winner!

oooo these are great! I love how silhouettes bring an antique feel to a room and still give a crisp and modern edge.

I adore silhouettes and am currently having ones of me and my sister from when we were children framed to hang in my bedroom. Love all your images especially that fabulous office which I've been fawning over each time I see it!

I like silhouettes, too, but have never done them. I really like Maureen's headboard project!

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

What a really cool collection of images, Lisa. Thank you so much for putting them together.

I don't think this'll ever go away - it's so classic.

Have a lovely weekend, gorgeous girl.

thanks for including us in this post! the room we designed that you featured is the homeowner's office...she'd previously had the silhouettes of her 4 children done and when were unpacking things for their newly renovated home we discovered them and decided her office would be the perfect place for them. we love them there and she gets to experience them everytime she sits down at her desk!

They look fabulous grouped together like that.

I ordered a book
on how to do these
last fall and this
reminds me that I
need to pull it out!
My mom is coming for
a nice visit on the 14th
and is much craftier
than I am, so this
project will be added
to THE LIST that I
want her to help me
with. Thanks for
these great images!

Adore!! And especially when the styles are mixed and they are not too cute. Such timeless pieces and fun for the next generation as well.

Happy new week to you, Lisa!

I really like the idea of making silhouette's! Thanks for the link! I've been wanting my boys to paint self portraits - they haven't cooperated with me yet! :)
