Making this DIY big head cutout is so quick and super fun because you get to admire the person you’re making it for. LOL! It really is so dang cute. Here’s how to make it:

Take a selfie or use a professional picture (make sure it’s high resolution) and have it printed in a 16×20 from your local printer. I used the Walgreens app because they usually include a 40-50% coupon from the $16 standard price plus offer same day or 1 day printing. However, Costco, Sams Club, Office Depot, or etc. can print it for you as well.

Using spray adhesive, mount photo onto the foam board. I like to spray the foam board first then place the photo on top. From there I work from the inside out to smooth it down.

We made them for every family member to hold over their face while performing a skit and dancing at a family reunion recently and got a ton of laughs! Another idea is to use it for a surprise birthday party; when the birthday boy or girl comes in they will see their face from all ages or events throughout their life as each partygoer holds one up and is sure to laugh. It’s also great to tape to your seatbelt to get away with riding in the carpool lane. KIIIIIDDING! 😉
