Silhouettes aren't just for elementary school crafts anymore-- they're making a comeback as lovely home decor and grown-up gifts!

Or this needlepoint belt buckle from Needle You:

I'm loving this modern personalized print from Nella Designs:

And this custom silhouette wedding poster from Ello There would make a great wedding gift:

A few months ago, I tried my hand at silhouette art to decorate our bedroom. I found this fantastic tutorial from The Fab Miss B and got to work. It was surprisingly simple! Here was my end result:

I was quite pleased with the final product!! Do you have any silhouette art in your house?
