February Craft w/ AmyP
February is always a fun month to get creative with gifts.
Pinterest is a great go-to for crafts and gifts.
One of my most favorite crafts that I gifted myself was silhouettes of each one of my children.
This is a pretty easy craft and you only need a few items.
You will need the following:
White card stock paper
Black acrylic paint
Camera – phone camera works
A colored sheet of paper of your choice
Take a picture of your child’s side profile in front of a sunny window or a solid color wall/door.
You will want to print out this photo – it is completely up to you on the size that you print.
(I chose an 8×10 photo for an 11×14 frame) but smaller photos are so cute too and make great ornaments.
Once the photo is printed, you or your child should flip the photo over and paint the back of the photo (so paint the entire white page.)
Once the black paint has dried, flip over the page which shows the photo of your child, and now cut out the outline of your child.
You can then flip now flip the photo again and here’s your silhouette.
You can glue or tape the silhouette to the colored page, write their name and date it. Then you can frame it.
