Silhouette on Burlap!

First- how do you like the new look around here?  I’ve been wanting to update my blog forever! 

Now, I’ve got another craft to share with all of you!  I made a silhouette from a picture of Brutus and then printed it on burlap!



If you have any interest, I thought I would put together a quick and easy tutorial for you!
First, choose your photo.  This may be the toughest part, seriously!  This is the only I started with:


Next, I followed the instructions on this website to create a silhouette using Picnik.  Hurry, because Picnik is sadly closing down in April :(  Brutus doesn’t shed- but man, it was not fun outlining his long crazy (but lovely) fur!  Here is how mine turned out:

Next, I used these instructions to learn how to print on burlap using freezer paper!


We placed ours on our mantle for now!  Let me know if you have any questions!

Hope you had a great weekend!  We were up to some major house projects this weekend that I’ll share with you later this week!
