No really, I screamed when I found it...nearly gave the poor hubby a heart attack. He didn't get what I was all worked up about. See, the hubby started going gray in his twenties. But me? Until today, I prided myself that I've made it to the age of 30 without any gray hair...okay, okay, you caught me...I'm not 30...I'm 38...but that's even better, no gray hair. Until today that is. Darn it all.
But I digress. Where was I again? Oh yeah, silhouettes.
A while ago I saw these darling vases in the Ballards Catalog. Love them. And since my little DIY-loving self gets a thrill out of doing cost-next-to-nothing knock-offs, I just had to share with you what I made.
The former inhabitants of this house left us a storage room brimming with canning jars. So I went down to said storage room and dug up a couple of pretty ones that didn't have embossing on them.
Then using my Silhouette Digital Cutter I cut out a Silhouette using their Frosted Vinyl, which I then place on one of the jars.
Of course, after I removed the Silhouette and the oval ring I was left with a pretty reverse silhouette, which I then placed on the other jar. (Waste not, want not.)
I really like the way they turned out. Not quite as elegant as the Ballard's version. But cute nonetheless...and my version was FREE people. Can't beat that.
