Today, I’m happily sharing my cheerful green mantel. We have yet to unpack our Christmas boxes so I’m sure this will be going through some edits before the big day. Most notably missing are our stockings. But those will come out soon enough. I was inspired by this cheerful apple green color. My Felt “Peace” Mantel Scarf gave me a clean white canvas to start with and my Christmas Mitten Garland adds another pop of my favorite green color.
I love to be able to use my milk glass and this year was no exception.
After a major craft fail involving sequins, a hot glue gun and a Styrofoam tree, I made this simple fabric covered tree, complete with a mother of pearl button from my Grandma’s button box. More milk glass.
I loved the sparkle and soft glow that these oil lamp candles added to my mantel. Until they set off my smoke alarm and I remembered why they’d been up in the closet for the last five Christmases. They’re now nestled unlit between my Dollar Store Snowflake Art.
My new Grapevine Rosette Wreath looks pretty hung over the mirror above my hearth.
My eleven year old couldn’t bear to leave out these sweet little love birds. They were from the Dollar Store last year. I painted their terra cotta birdiness with a little Krylon Champagne Nouveau.
