I absolutely love silhouettes but I have never quite gotten myself around to trying them. Yesterday, I ran across this blog and instantly fell in love with the idea. Let me tell you, it wasn't easy getting my twins to cooperate (they are 16 months old, after all), but the results turned out fantastic nonetheless.
I did make a few tweaks. Since I don't see myself making oodles of silhouettes in the near future, I only glued down the head and gently taped the "hat". This way, come Christmas - or any other fun holiday (Birthday hats, perhaps?) - I can easily switch out the accessories for something more fitting.
I haven't decided on a frame yet. I'm thinking some cheap 8x10 shadow boxes?
I can't believe it, but these goblins were featured at:
