Silhouettes

I love the projects I get from the Goodwill!!!
I recently bought these 3 plaques for $1.51 for the set.

They were dated and I knew I wouldn't use them in their present state, but would figure out something to do with them.
I decided to make silhouettes for a little girls' room.

I started by painting them white.
 I had planned on painting them white and black, but decided they would be really cute it they were black and blue.
I added turquoise paint to the white until I got a Tiffany blue...



I painted the borders of the plaques with black paint...

Using my Cricut, I cut out 3 designs...
a chandelier, a crown, and a perfume bottle.
I stenciled the designs onto the plaques with black paint.
 
Now the plaques are fit for a princess!
Pin It

  1. Very cute. You did a great job. I did a whole bunch of silhouettes on scrap wood but I didn't use a stencil.

  8. I love your idea! And I love stencils. I donate so much to Goodwill - maybe I should shop there too! Wondering if I should invest in a Cricut machine.
