Select Item to Photograph

Sort through favorite toys and objects looking for those with graphic shapes and/or vivid colors. Tip: Stick with easily identifiable objects such as cars, trucks, dolls, teddy bears and army men.

Take High-Resolution Photo

Place item in a well-lit area with an interesting texture in the background. Use digital camera to take a straight-on image because photos taken at an angle can distort objects, making them less recognizable.

Measure Wall

Use tape measure to determine dimensions of wall on which finished project will hang. Jot measurements down on notepad using pencil. Refer to dimensions on note pad when deciding on size for finished project.
