Last year we lived in a small townhouse and I wasnt able to decorate much for the holidays. We had a small tree and a few other minor things but our new house is big and perfect for decorating! Of course our gorgeous mantel is the first place that I start.
I started with the left over banner from my Thanksgiving mantel and when I say I started I mean I didnt take it down. [Lazzzzy!] I added the JOY burlap picture that I made and I really liked how the two colors looked together. So I went with it.
I needed a few other accessories so I grabbed a few maroon books from the shelf [double points for them being Christmas themed reading material!] and put Ryley’s birdhouse on top along with a pine cone.
For the top part of the mantel I re-purposed my brown frames with blue accents I cut from my Silhouette. The garland has faux cranberries and helps tie in all the colors. Im pretty much in love with this mantel. Oh.. I already said that? Dang.
What is your favorite part of the house to decorate for Christmas?
