no. 2 and 3 Halloween Silhouettes

Remember the witch silhouette that I showed you how to create here?  I asked if you wanted me to create two more to make a set, and the response was a resounding YES!  So, I got busy and created the witch's cat, and her broom

Aren't they cute?  I have them displayed vertically, but you could display them horizontally as well. (like on a mantle, bookshelf or on the wall.)

I have had these old white shutters floating around my house for years now.  I bought two sets of them at Goodwill long ago.  The antique brown chippy wood frame was from a yard sale this summer.  It has three old spotty mirrors that go in the openings, but I haven't decided whether or not I want to reattach them.  For now I am using the frame to house my silhouettes.  I just set them inside the rim where the glass usually goes~so it's not permanent.

Follow the same directions as we did here for the witch.

Remember to copy each image (see below) separately into microsoft word, and enlarge to fill up as much of the page as possible.  (or copy it into picasa and have it fill up the entire frame before you print)  Frame in matching black dollar store document frames.   (oh yeah, if you do it in microsoft word, take a straight edge and continue the broom handle lines to the top of the page, and do the same with the ledge that the cat is sitting on.  It will make sense after you print them)

Have fun!

OH!  If you haven't discovered these Incredible Hooks yet, I highly recommend them!  You will no longer need a hammer and nails to hang things on the walls.  It seems like I am always searching for the hammer.  I bought some at walmart but now they have them at the Dollar Tree for obviously a lot cheaper!
So you could even use these to hang your silhouettes!


  1. I love how you displayed the pictures inside a long frame...very cute!

  2. These are my FAVORITE Halloween decor I have ever seen! Found you through UCREATE!

  3. i love this but can't click on the broom to save it...?

  4. I can't click on the broom either.

  5. i'm curious about the incredible hooks. I think I need to try them.

  6. Hi! Very lovely blog you have. I am a new follower. Please check out mine if you have a chance. Thanks and have a wonderful weekend!


  7. You should be able to click on the broom now!!! I'm so sorry about that! Let me know if you have any more trouble.

  8. Hi Robyn,

    I love this idea! I didn't have any paint around the house today or a way to get to the store to get some, so copied your designs and edited them on my photo editing software. Then I printed them off of the cardstock. They came out really great too! I'm going to get some frames for them and hang them up. Thanks for such a great idea!!

  9. Thank you so much for the silhouettes..I used the witch one to make a pillow and I am going to frame another set.

  10. Those are SO cool! And I love how you displayed them. Glad you could join my party today--Happy Fall! :-)

  14. Hi Robyn. I read about your Halloween Silhouettes on Kari's blog Ucreate and just had to check out your tutorial and make a set for myself. Although my pictures are very good I was thrilled with the results. I've blogged about it here: I added a link back to your blog as well as Kari's. I hope you don't mind. BTW ~ I love your display. I thought it was Kari's at first but now realize it's yours. Thanks so much for sharing this project with us.
