Make a Silhouette Portrait Lamp Shade
Looking for a fun and different way to help your teen personalize her room? Create a lamp shade decorated with her silhouette portrait for a one of a kind work of art.
Popular in the 18th century, silhouette portraits are traditionally black against a light background, but here you'll create a silhouette by punching holes in a piece of paper in the shape of your child's profile. When light shines through, her portrait will illuminate!
