I love figuring out how to get a look for less! I've seen so many Christmas accessories that I know I could duplicate for way less than what they want in the stores. One of the things I really liked this year is this Santa Silhouette Plaque from Ballard Designs. It's $49 but I made my own version for pennies.
What I really liked is the white silhouette on the red background - so festive for this time of year and different from the traditional black silhouettes. So I got a piece of red card stock and some white posterboard, had my daughter draw a Christmas tree for me, cut it out and framed it.
A Ballard Hack for pennies! I could have done the whole thing but I chose the element that I really liked. Wouldn't a white reindeer on red be pretty too! I'm thinking about making a little one of those.
This is a beautifully painted silhouette that I got from Suzanne last year. She's an amazing artist.
Wouldn't you know that TJ Maxx has a whole set of these Christmas Scene Silhouettes! Cups, dinner plates, the whole shebang! I just bought two plates to decorate with (maybe they'll be some left after Christmas).
