  • Mom-to-be, should stand in front of the canvas faced left or right.
  • You, a co-host, or another guest, should trace the silhouette of mommy’s torso. If the shower is co-ed, ask the new dad to do the honors.

TIP:You can use a light source to cast the shadow of the baby bump onto canvas. Dad or another guest can trace an outline of the shadow.
