Dog Silhouette Prints

While the sale prices were super reasonable ($19.99 marked down from $44!) I figured I could still do better. So what started out as a water color stencil project (much like the water color holiday card stencils I created last year) very quickly turned into a simple silhouette cut-out project. See below for how-to details.

Materials:

  • card-stock (I used water color paper here but any plain, thick paper will do)
  • x-acto knife
  • computer paper/printer/black ink
  • tape (I used scotch to tape the silhouette cut-outs to the card-stock, then black electric tape to paste the finished products to the wall)

Process:

  1. google image search for your favorite dog silhouettes
  2. resize the silhouette images in photoshop or word to print (mine were about 6″x6″)
  3. place the printed silhouettes on top of cardboard or an old magazine then cut around the silhouette with an x-acto knife
  4. center each silhouette on its respective sheet of card-stock (mine were sized to 8″x8″)
  5. arrange and either frame or tape to your wall as-is
