I love Disney decor; my room is filled with classic movie posters, photos from my trips to the park, and my childhood figurines of my favorite characters. But Disney art can be a little pricey, so I prefer to create my own decor when I can. This is a tutorial for an easy way to add some Disney magic to your home: attraction silhouettes.
What you’ll need:
- Scrapbook paper
- Black cardstock
- Red Pen
- Computer & printer
- Printer paper
- Optional: frame(s)
- Find photos of your favorite attractions/landmarks in the park, and size them to fit whatever dimensions you will need (this is easy to do in a word doc). Make your image ½ the height of your final photo size. My photos will be 8×10, so I made each image 4” tall.
- Print your photos, and shade in the back of the paper with a pencil. Make sure to cover the whole outline of the image you want in your final product.
- Place the paper face up onto your black cardstock. Make sure to hold the paper still, and trace over the outline of your image with a pen. I like to use a red pen so that it’s easy to see what I’ve already traced.
- Cut out the silhouette on the cardstock, and use the pencil’s eraser to remove any stray pencil marks. Glue the silhouette onto the center of your scrapbook paper.
And that’s it! You can use scrapbook paper and cardstock to create all kinds of silhouettes: Mickey’s head, your favorite Disney characters, even your family in the park…this project works for almost anything.
