What you'll need:

  • Wanted Poster Printout

  • Brown construction paper

  • Child’s Photo

  • Marker

  • Scissors

  • Craft Knife

  • Glue Stick


How to make it:

  1. Print out the Wanted Poster Pattern that you like – We have 3 versions

  2. Print and cut out a photo of the child for the photo

  3. Have an adult cut a slit in the poster where the hat meets the head area.

  4. Insert your photo through this slot, positioning the picture to look best. (Tip: for the best look, trim away background images in the photo.  If you are printing the photo from a computer, try setting the photo on the sepia tone or even black and white setting for a more authentic look)

  5. Glue your photo down and touch up the edges with black marker if needed.

  6. Mount your picture on brown construction paper.  To make it look like wood, add a few squiggly lines to be the wood grain and maybe a few bullet holes– and that’s it!
