Today is a momentous day!
Not only is it December 1st but it is also my 100th post! Yippee!
It has been so fun writing posts and getting comments.
Today I want to show you my "Christmas Mantle".
I have no fireplace *tear* so I have had to make due with what I do have.
Let's take a look!
Oooo! I love it!
Here's the break down:
My Christmas Wreath!
I originally the red beaded thing for garland but I liked the look of it wrapped as a circle for the wreath. I then added some embellishments (and fabulous dried oranges!). My grandmother gave me those Christmas bears when I was little and I thought they looked fabulous there!
I have been scouring the thrift stores for fabulous glass jars so when I found this one for $1.99 at Savers I knew I had to have it!
All I did was added some fake cranberry beads and some gold Christmas balls and Voila! I love how the gold shimmers!
I found this "cage" basket at Savers for .99 cents and loved it. I made two decor balls from this tissue craft stuff and some green jute I got at GW for .99 cents. I kept the yellow ball because I love it!
Last is my lovely garland!
I saw it in a magazine and I love the simpicity of plus it glitters really nice! I picked up some $1.00 ornaments at Walmart and I really like the colors together.
So that is my "Christmas Mantle" what does yours look like?
