Print out of side profile picture
1.Take a side profile picture of your subject, be it person or animal. (You can also experiment with using pictures of your house, your favorite dress, or other shapes!!)

5.Cut your decorative paper to the size of your wooden plaque.

7.Apply mod podge to the back of the silhouette and place onto the plaque, which now has the decorative paper on it.
8.Apply a few coats of mod podge over the top of the entire finished plaque, making sure to let dry between coats.
** You can also use a decorative paper for the silhouette and solid black for the background!
