I decided to decorate my mantel this year with natural colors and I'm so glad I did. I think it looks so good with the Texas stone of our fireplace. Please enjoy looking at the pictures...I have so many more decorations to show you and alot of crafts that I have made too.
I had the little trees from the past years and simply wrapped some burlap on the bases and tied it with twine.
The Happy Holidays ribbon came from Michael's and I adhered it with scrapbooking tape!
I scored some miscellaneous branches at the Michael's sale when it opened on Thanksgiving Day for 40% off with an additional 30% off my total purchase. I tied them all together with floral wire and finished it off with some burlap ribbon.
My favorite part of the mantel is the wreath. It is a Martha Stewart wreath from Home Depot and I just simply made a bow out of the ribbon I had and affixed it with floral wire.
I hope you've enjoyed looking at the Christmas mantel and sorry I've been MIA for so long. I've missed sharing with all of you. Hope you have a great weekend!
