DIY Painted Silhouette Christmas Ornaments

December 7, 2016

DIY Painted Silhouette Christmas Ornaments    I love making Christmas ornaments so I wanted to start a new Christmas ornament tradition for Indigo. I already made some photo ornaments, but I wanted a theme that I could make every year, then the idea hit- silhouettes!!! This is Indigo’s second Christmas, but luckily I already had his silhouette from last year’s for this DIY project
     These DIY silhouette Christmas ornaments are really easy to make and best of all, no artistic skill is required. It only looks like it!
Supplies:
Wood slice
Profile picture & photo editing software
Graphite paper
Sharpie (fine point)
Acrylic paint
Woven ribbon
Drill
(optional) Metallic Sharpie for writing the year

DIY Painted Silhouette Christmas Ornaments
Take a picture of your subject against a plain background (a wall is great) Turn it into a silhouette using this technique. Cut out the silhouette.

Place the graphite paper on top of the wood slice. Place the silhouette picture on top. Trace around the silhouette with a pencil

Once you lift the paper, your silhouette will be transferred to the wood. Awesome, right?

Next, trace around the image with the Sharpie. This is much easier than trying to paint all those fine lines!
