    I would LOVE to silhousette my great-grands. How would you go about making a ‘templet’ of a child? Love your ideas and just know you can help me. Thanks, Charlotte

      Hi Charlotte…What a great idea! I think you could use a picture of the child facing sideways to create a template. Print the picture to the size you want your silhouette to be and then cut around the child’s head to create the silhouette shape. (If you are using a professionally printed picture and don’t want to cut it, you can scan it or photocopy it, and then do the cut out on the copy). I think I would do the cut-out so that the outside of the picture is kept in tact, to create a DIY stencil (the hole that is left in the middle would be the silhouette template). Then you can either use it as a stencil and paint the silhouette, or use it as a template to trace the silhouette shape onto black construction paper (or whatever material you are using for the silhouette). The rest of the process would be the same as the instructions in this post. I hope this works for you…Thanks for visiting!
