Christmas Mantel 2016

Better late than never...

Our Christmas mantel has been done for some time now but oops, I have not shared it here on the blog yet.

I am loving the simplicity of it this year.

Some faux greenery, a red berry garland, a couple votive holders, and some sticks that I painted.

I didn't use any glue or wire on this wreath.
The picks are just strategically placed into the wreath.
Check out some other wreaths that I've made.

Instead of a bow, I used this burlap poinsettia that has a little bit of glitter.
It is a pick, as are the berries.
I bought these at Hobby Lobby...on sale of course.

The wreath hangs on the mirror above the mantel.

I gathered these sticks from the yard last year and spray painted them with some glitter paint.
I stored them with my Christmas decor, and think they held up nicely.

The votive holders were a gift.
Because they are so close to the greenery and berries, I chose to use battery operated candles.

Cold outside and toasty warm of my favorite times.

I think it's fun to look at this year's mantel compared to previous years.
Seeing how my scrapbooks are gathering dust ;-(  I'm glad to have this blog as a remembrance.
