Cut the Silhouette
Using a jigsaw, carefully cut along the outside lines of the silhouette, starting at the bottom then working your way up each side to the top of the image. Use the holes drilled inside the sections to cut out the remaining parts of the plywood, leaving you with a wooden cutout of your printed silhouettes.
Use an orbital sander with 120-grit paper to sand the edges and surface of the plywood cutout.
Paint and Hang
Using a paintbrush, paint the cutout to desired color scheme. Allow at least 4 hours for paint to cure before hanging on wall with Velcro or mounting squares.
Take note of your child's changes in height with a growth chart that's larger than life.
