I made a silhouette once before; and I still had one more frame to use from when I scored these two for 10 cents at a garage sale this summer. I saw something like this on pinterest, and knew I had to make one for milos room. I found the batman art here; spraypainted the frame black (it was a gross brown color before); then used mod podge to affix the batman to the map paper. I used a heavier cardstock for the black batman because regular paper wilts and wrinkles when you use the mod podge on top of it. I originally thought of using a page from a comic book, but when I put the art on it, it didn’t stand out enough. You definitely want something that will make the black stand out.
I love this! I think its whimsical and fun, and it works perfectly in milo’s room.
This weekend I got two of these frames for 25 cents at a garage sale. I thought they would be perfect to take home and spraypaint and make a silhouette of milo. The original frames were brown; I spraypainted this one grey, added some colored paper behind it. I took a photo of milo, printed it out to size and traced it on top of this dark grey cardstock I had. I glued the face to the colored paper and then put a thin coat of mod podge over it. Now I need to figure out where to hang this….
(P.S. this photo shows our GROSS bedroom paint colors. light pink with a purpley-grey trim. Hoping to get the bedroom painted soon, then I’ll unveil it!)

One of my favorite things about the drive to southern illinois are the sunsets.
Another thing I love is how Milo calls these plane tracks in the sky “shooting stars.”
