Nap Time Crafts: Family Cameos

family cameo DIY

I have taken so many photos since my Little Button arrived that I don’t quite know what to do with them all. Inspired by Kirstie Allsopp, I decided to create a family portrait for our hallway using some of these photos, giving them a vintage cameo twist.

For this Nap Time Craft you will need:

  • Pictures (in profile) of your family members
  • Craft knife
  • Black acrylic paint and paintbrush
  • Decorative card and glue
  • Photo frames

To begin, print out your photos on normal white paper. You do not need photo paper for this.

Using a craft knife, carefully cut out the photos. I curved the bottom of my photos to give them a slightly Victorian feel.


Paint each photo with two coats of black acrylic paint and leave them to dry.


Glue them onto the decorative card…


… and frame!

  1. I’ve been meaning to try this for ages, but I’m afraid of my dodgy cutting out skills. You make it look so easy, so maybe I’ll just take the plunge 😉
