weekend diy :: animal silhouettes

| DIY projects


we haven't had a weekend diy in a while- so i found this over at living creativity and thought it had lots of potential! what can i say- i love cheap art.  here are the directions- and check at the bottom for full downloadable pdfs.


what do you think- easy, right? for silhouettes- i'm thinking flowers, vegetables, leaves..  and just think about all the beautiful paper from your local craftstore you could use to make these just stunning.  please share if you get the itch to do this or have any creative thoughts!

    • hey marie! unfortunately, since this post in 2009, the author of the original project has taken down her website. i know it’s incredibly disappointing! hopefully, you can use the above directions to figure it out. maybe you could trace a photo or some clipart? so sorry!
