Silhouette Mantel Art

Silhouette Mantel Art from Cookie Mag's home tour with Stephanie Nielsen.

"These silhouette prints are gorgeous. Are they of your family? Yes, I do them every year. It's really fun and easy. I hang the old ones in the guest room; my kids love to see how they've grown, how their hair is longer, etc.

How do you make them? I take a photo of each person and carefully cut it out. Then I paint it black and put it on white paper. My grandmother had silhouette prints; and I love how they're reminiscent of antiques and the flea market scene."
