Merry Christmas Everyone!
Here is our lovely Christmas mantle! This was the first time decorating the mantle for Christmas and I really like the way it turned out. The lighted garland is from Target, the wooden reindeer is from Marshalls, I made the dollar store glass hurricanes several years back and filled them with red and silver balls. My mom made our stockings (mine when I was little and Eric's when we got engaged), the snowman is from Hallmark several years ago and the wooden Santa basket is from Peggy which I filled it with pine cones.
Very simple components and easy to put together. I didn't want it to look over-cluttered or too busy.
I only wish the mantle could stay up longer... this year the Christmas decor time is even shorter with how late Thanksgiving is. I'm not sure how I will redecorate the mantle for winter but part of me kinda wants to keep the wooden reindeer. I've grown attached to it and how awesome it looks up there against the white mantle, white mirror and gray walls... maybe I can pass it off as a deer....
Hope yall have a Merry Christmas!
