I finally completed one of my favorite projects for this year...my witch silhouette wall!
If you ask me, Halloween decor isn't complete without a few ladies in black!
I had a lot of inspiration for this project. The first one came from Out of the Attic. She is another witch lover like me, and I have gotten a ton of ideas from her decorations. She had these lovely witches above her coat hooks that I just loved:
My other inspiration came from a shop on Etsy. She had the most darling witch silhoette for sale:
At first I wanted to just copy her silhouette directly because it was so darn cute, but I decided to just use it purely as inspiration and make my silhouettes completely my own. That way I could feel a little better about sharing my drawings. Yes, I'm going to share! You can find the PDF's to download at the end of this post.
So to start my project, I printed out my scanned picture of my witches. I used the darling Nessarose as my example (each of my silhouettes has a name). There are many different mediums you can use to create silhouettes, but I chose the paper route.
I cut out her out and traced her with a pencil on black paper. I found it helpful to use a little bit of adhesive or tape to keep the stencil from moving around too much.
Then I cut out Nessarose in black, and used my spooky damask paper and white oval from last year. Isn't she a beauty?
And then of course I repeated the process for her sisters. I love how they turned out!
Time to make your own! Feel free to print these out and see what you can do.
Sorry Zelda. I didn't fit you into the decor this year, but since I had a baby in April there will be another frame up here for you in time for next year. :)
