I made these as Christmas gifts for some family members last year and they were a big hit! DIY custom address doormats... Mats originally from IKEA... Numbers cut from thin cardboard (I used giftboxes), striping done with masking tape. Paint 2-3 thin and even coats with exterior-grade spraypaint. Remove tape and numbers and allow to dry overnight.
silhouettes from photos...I did this with my grandchildren as a Christmas gift from them to their parents. I also added an initial for their name. They turned out very nice & were very easy to do. http://www.lifeingraceblog.com/2010/11/12-dayshandmadechristmastutorialsday9silhouettes.html
