Hi there! I'm so glad you stopped by.
I'd like to show you my Christmas Mantel.
My starting point, the window I used in my fall mantel.
This is another one of my "dumpster rescues"! As I told you in a previous post, I work for a remodeler and all the carpenters know what kind of things I dig out of the dumpster. So, when they have something from a job site that they think I will like, they bring it back to the office for me. This window was one of them.
I made the wreath last year, for a boutique. It didn't sell, so I decided to use it this year.
It is not what I would normally use, but I really like the colors, so I decided to decorate around it.
Have you ever made your own wreath? It is SO simple.
I went to Michael's, bought a plain wreath and a group of holly and berries in a bunch. I cut them apart, hot glued them on to the wreath and added some red and gold bulbs. If I can do this, anybody can!
The lamp was also from my fall mantel. I love the ambiance of it and thought it would be perfect for the Christmas mantel. I added a poinsettia, some bulbs, a pine branch and a gold pick I had.
On the other side, I added this little Christmas tree and decorated it.
I added a few brass candlesticks with red candles, some more poinsettias and bulbs. Super easy!
Turn on the fire, sit back and relax!
There is a lot more decorating to do, so the relax part is coming.....soon I hope!
Thank you so much for stopping by. It means the world to me.
