I found this great project on Better Homes and Gardens. I took the liberty of giving some additional vintage inspired ideas for this project.
- Vintage Frames
- A can of Spray Paint
- Small but heavy everyday items (see Etsy examples below)
Lay your small but heavy items on the paper
Spray the paper covering the entire page as well as the items
Gently remove your small items. A silhouette should remain.
Let dry and frame your art in a vintage frame.
Great Materials found on Vintage Etsy:
Frames: Set of six unique gold frames $48.00
Great Inspiration for art
Upper Left: Vintage Collection of three skeleton Keys $10.00
Upper Right: Colorful Weathered tool set $26.00
Middle:Vintage Children's Scissors $4.00
Lower Left: Two Vintage Primitive Fancy Oval Skeleton Key Hole Cover Escutcheons $10.00
Lower Right:Ornate Distressed Hardware Flat $14.00
Note: If you're like me you're not wanting to throw away the now spray painted ornate vintage item that was just used to make the silhouette. Here's an idea... Frame the colorful item and hang it next to your silhouette art creating a unique vintage inspired collection!
