I have always loved silhouette artwork. I find silhouette artwork to be timeless, classy, and goes with any decor style. I wanted to make some DIY silhouette artwork of my daughter, and plan to continue to make some silhouette artwork every year (or so) to see how her silhouette changes throughout the years.
I made one of these before and I wanted to make another one because Jaylis facial features have changed SO much in just a few short years! And…don’t worry if the time has past and your child is grown now because you can hunt through your old photos and still create this timeless art piece!
I found these DIY silhouette artwork to be SO EASY and FUN to make!
