First of all, thanks to Rylie for having me guest post for her! I am so honored to write on such a wonderful, inspiring blog today! Since Rylie makes a lot of things herself, I though I'd share one of my latest projects. Vintage is one of my biggest loves, so are DIY projects. What happens when you combine the two? Well my dears, you get vintage inspired DIY. The other day I saw a beautiful silhouette in an antique store and I soon feel in love. Tragically, it was more than my tight wad self wanted to spend. The solution? Make my own! So that is exactly what I did. It was incredibly easy and cost next to nothing, so I thought I would share the tutorial with you guys!

Step 1: Find some frames
I picked up some cheap Dollar Store frames and spray pained them white.

Step 2: Pick a background
I chose some muted green scrapbook paper for mine. It also has a vintage feel to it, but you could really use just about anything. This is where your own personality will come through.

Step 3: Chose your silhouettes
I found some that looked similar to me and my husband online and printed them out on card stock. Trust me, there are TONS to choose from. It's very likely you will find some that look like you!

Step 4: Trace and cut out onto black scrapbook paper
Feel free to take some artistic liberty here. I think my man's silhouette was actually of Edward Cullen, so I changed up the nose, chin and hair to look more like my man. I did the same with the girl as well.

Step 5: Glue your silhouettes to your background and let dry

Step 6: After you let the glue dry, insert your background into the frame. Done!

Now you have lovely silhouettes! I told you it was easy. Thanks again to Rylie for having me here today! I hope this post inspires you all to go out and make lots of vintage inspired wonderfulness!
Much love!
