Inexpensive and simple to make duck baby shower decorations, these framed duck silhouettes can be hung in a series to create a backdrop for a dessert table or made just as a nice accent for a duck baby shower. After the baby shower, the mother to be is sure to appreciate being able to use these cuties for decoration in baby’s nursery. You can see the rest of this Modern Duck Baby Shower here!
The laser-cut frames are available at most craft stores nationwide. The ones shown here were less than $3 a piece! If you can’t find them, this method will work just as well using a regular frame with a glass front.
how to make frame duck baby shower decorations
- Laser cut frame with 11×14 opening
- Yellow spray paint
- Grey foam core
- Yellow and white patterned scrapbook paper
- Duck silhouette template (below in pdf and svg)
- hot glue
In a well-ventilated area, spray paint the laser cut frame and let dry completely.
The opening to the frames I used measured 11×14 inches. Be sure to measure the opening to the frames you choose; if it isn’t 11×14 inches, measure and cut foam core to ¼ inch larger than your opening. If you are unable to find foam core in grey, use white and then cover the board in grey paper.
Using the free downloadable template for the duck silhouette, cut a duck out of your choice of yellow patterned scrapbook paper. If you are a Cricut user like I am, grab the SVG and have your machine do the work!
After you’ve finished cutting everything out, glue stick the duck to the center of the cut pieces of grey foam core.
Put a small dot of hot glue to each corner of the grey foam core on the side that will show through the frame. Adhere the foam core carefully to the opening of the frame. Your pieces of art are now ready to hang!
If you would prefer a less permanent adhesive than hot glue to attach the ducks if you want to re-use the frames at a later date, simply tape the foam core to the frame instead of using hot glue.
