how do I make a large stencil?

I want to paint a silhouette of a tree behind my daughter's bed.  I was thinking a stencil would be the easiest way to do this, but I have never seen really large stencils.  I had an idea to trace it out on contact paper, cut out the image with an exacto knife, and adhere the contact paper to the wall.  Then I could paint over it.  Would this work?  Is there a better way?  And do I use regular wall paint to do this?  Thanks!

For my big projects, I use a projector.
