If you saw our Christmas mantel … you may have noticed this cute little guy.

Late one night, while getting caught up on a few episodes of Revenge …

’cause nothing screams holiday spirit quite like a little revenge … or something like that.  ;)

… I decided I wanted to make a reindeer.

I had an empty frame lying around, I had already discovered my love for metallic this year, and I knew I was looking to go red and gold on the mantel.

A cute little reindeer seemed like the perfect addition to the arrangement.
the mantelI just painted the backer board for the frame with the same gold metallic paint I used on the base for our advent tree, and used the exact same technique to make this silhouette as I did to make the canvas silhouettes of the girls.

An easy and FREE little addition to our Christmas decor … and I can just cover the backer board with craft paper or a picture to show through the rest of the year.  And when next Christmas comes around she’ll be ready and waiting behind the scenes for another appearance.

Unless, of course, I decide to go green and silver next year, which is entirely possible.  :)
