Yes, it is August. I know. I can't help it when ideas pop into this crazy old brain of mine. Think of it this way, you have plenty of time to make these for you and your extended family! It is sooooo easy.
Take a profile photo of your little ghoul, goblin or witch wearing a distinct Halloweenie (hee-hee) prop. Print out on regular printer paper. I did mine 8x10.
Glue picture onto black construction paper with a glue stick. Do not use regular wet glue. It will wrinkle the paper. Use the glue stick sparingly. It really is meant to prevent the paper from moving while your cutting. It doesn't need to be cemented on.
Using your (good=sharp) scissors and cut out your picture.
Once you've cut out your picture, flip paper over to reveal the black construction paper silhouette.
Mount. I used a painting of Em's as the background.
So cute! I am trying to hunt down the cat for his silhouette. Maybe harder than I think!
Seriously this is soooo easy. No tracing involved. Just remember you end up with your picture reversed - so plan accordingly. I am also thinking this would be so cool covered in black fine glitter. Have fun! Let me know if you come up with some creative props.
