How to Make It
Enlarge the tree pattern to desired size. Cut out the pattern.
Draw around the pattern on heavy black paper; cut out.
Hang on the wall with tape or sticky puttylike adhesive.
For the portraits, in a word-processing or page layout program, place desired 5-x-7-inch to 8-x-10-inch clip-art borders.
Add your own silhouettes or clip-art silhouette images as you like. Print images and cut out.
In a well-ventilated area, liberally spray mounting adhesive on the back of each "portrait." Let dry.
Center and press the portraits onto the black poster board; cut out. Hang the silhouettes on the tree with tape or adhesive.
