Framed, Silhouette, Picture Wall! / First Giveaway!

I have been wanting to create a framed photo wall for some time now, to display some of the pictures my daughters and I had taken this summer. So, the hunt was on for some cheap frames that had good lines. Here are a few that I have picked up over the past few months, none costing more than three dollars. I also wanted some oval shaped frames and was having a hard time finding any, so I came up with this solution. I bought two of these cheap plastic platters at the dollar store and painted them. I knew exactly what I wanted to put in them.



After using one can of black spray paint, here is the finished product.



I am loving the dramatic statement this makes in my entryway! I used the same paint to paint the platters that I used on my entry table.

And put these AMAZING silhouettes of my girls in them, which brings me to some exciting news!
Enchantresses Three would like to welcome our very first official sponsor, Vinyl Silhouettes!

You've seen silhouettes and you've seen vinyl. Add them together and you get a modern twist on the classical favorite - silhouettes you can apply directly to the wall, or wherever your heart desires! In my case I added them to my painted dollar store trays!


This is how they arrived. The process is so easy, I just took theses profile pictures of my daughters,



And emailed them to Vinyl Silhouettes



When they arrived, they were so easy to apply!



I took off the paper backing,

and used a gift card to gently rub on to my platter!


I do believe this is squeal worthy!


SQUEEEAAAL!


For those of you who are new to Enchantresses Three, you might not remember the fairyland that Vinyl Silhouettes created in my girls room.


YES! Those are actual silhouettes of my daughters!


I dressed them up like fairies and had a fun photo shoot with them.

These are the pictures Vinyl Silhouettes used.

To create the wall vinyl wonderland in their bedroom!


Seriously, could this company be any more AMAZING! The possibilities are endless! What a fantastic way to personalize your home!


Although they specialize in custom life size and bust silhouettes they recently started selling non-custom stock decals for which they have already been featured in the L.A. Times trendsetting article for their silverware decals.

Now for the kick awesome news! We've teamed up with Vinyl silhouettes to offer our first product giveaway! For this giveaway, we will be picking one lucky commenter to receive a custom head silhouette- person or pet- up to 20" wide.

Rules~ You must go on over to Vinyl silhouettes website, look through their amazing idea gallery, and come back and leave a comment letting us know what your favorite product is!

It is that easy!

This giveaway will go through Wednesday Oct. 28th!



I am linking my photo wall up to Kimba's DIY party!

Beautiful! I love silhouettes. What color of blue is the entry chest painted? I am getting ready to paint an old french provincial hutch and I am thinking of doing it blue -- and yours looks exactly like I want mine to look.

Cathy said...

Your wall looks great, I love the picture with the lollipops!!

Mine favorite (which is very hard by the way!) is the full body silhouettes. What a great giveaway!

Meshellyn said...

I really like the full body silhouettes... now could I get my two year old and 7 month old to sit/stand still long enough to get a decent photo??? I'd sure try!

Love your family photo wall. The silhouettes are fabulous.

Richa said...

Hi,

Love your blog and LOVE the silhouettes.

I did go over to their site but it is so hard to decide on any one product.

My favorite was the silhouette of the 2 sisters above the bunk beds. Great idea.

Congrats on your first sponsorship.

Stacey said...

These are so stinkin cute! I love that everyone can get copies of your little "fairies" in the own little girl's room! So hard to pick a favorite, I love that the company will do custom pieces of children - makes it so much more personal than other vinyl sites out there!

Jamison said...

I love all of them. I have been trying (failing) to make my own bust silhouettes of my two children and would to have some one do it for me :) So the simple head silhouettes are my favorite!

Alesia said...

Your wall is absolutely amazing. The vinyl silhouettes add the perfect touch. I went to the website and immediately fell in love with the full body silhouette over the fireplace. I see one of those in my future.

Sherri S said...

Nifty NEAT idea! Love the fairies. Both human and decor!

Nancy Sabina said...

It's all so fabulous! I think I'd choose a classic profile silhouette to start ... or maybe one of my daughter as a Princess for her Princess room...

cakescraps said...

I think the full body ones are my favorite...I know my son would love to see a silhouette of him with his baseball gear!

Michelle said...

Love, love, love the silhouettes!! I couldn't pick only one favorite... so my favs are the children full body silhouettes over the fireplace and the little girl blowing the pussy willows. But the ones of your girls in the fairy costumes are adorable! My daughter (age4) would L.O.V.E. herself like that!! Michelle
