To those that know me, it's no surprise that I'm thrifty. I love the challenge of creating something inexpensively that turns out good enough to hang on the wall. Canvases can get expensive and I like my sides thick. So what's a girl to do but make her own. Thin paneling from any home improvement store, along with some 1x bats and you have the base. I just used liquid nail to attach it all together. I stained the boards and once they were dry I stenciled the numbers with white paint. FedEx Office enlarged the numbers for me, and I simply cut them out with an exacto knife. Sealed with a clear coat and there you have it, cheap and beautiful art! Double bonus: My boys are thrilled to see their soccer jersey numbers on the wall as art.

Create a natural Christmas by adding to the décor you already have. Lots of pinecones, garlands, glittery snowflakes and snowballs. Wrap an empty box in your favorite paper to tuck in somewhere. With all the craziness on the mantel, I kept the dining table centerpiece super simple. Enjoy! Merry Christmas!
