The fireplace mantel in our new place had me stumped this year. Part of the problem is that I’m trying to decorate it like the two larger mantels I had in my old house. This mantel is smaller and narrower. I have redone this mantel three times and that’s it; I’m done. No more futzing with it!
The most recent addition was the beaded garland that I found in one of my bins. I’ve also decided to bring in some things that are not quite as big as what I’ve used in past Christmases ~ like these bottle brush trees that I bleached here.
I also included one that I bought from Becky at Junk to Joy. Love the one she did!
I added my Lladro Christmas tree, and the boy and girl that go with it, on the other side. I had no other surface to really put it on, plus I need to keep them out of reach of little hands.
So that’s me this year! I’m hoping to pick up some inspiration for next year though, because I’m not touching this mantel again until January, when everything gets put away!
