Has anybody else noticed these lovely frames in the background of a room in the Pottery Barn catalog?
My sister-in-law had a birthday coming up and I thought these would look great hanging in her library where she displays a sheet music wreath and a violin, so this picture provided the inspiration for this Silhouette Frame project.
1. Begin by tracing your silhouette graphic with a pencil (press as hard as you can) onto the paper of your choice. (For the silhouette I did a quick online search for my image, copied it into Word, resized and printed.)
2. Cut out silhouette.
This is a good time to get your kid-friendly scissors out so your toddler can work on her own cutting project (smile)...
3. Trace your frame size onto a sheet of music paper and cut out.
5. Assemble frame and you're finished. Easy as can be!
I wanted to give my sister-in-law two frames that she could hang together, so I also did a butterfly and flower silhouette.
I can't wait to see how these look hanging in my brother and sister-in-law's library. I think a matte with the frame (like Pottery Barn displayed their silhouettes) would also look really good... but it just didn't look right with this oval frame, so I opted to go without.
I simply tied these together with a piece of twine to give to her. Sweet and simple.
