Hey! I finished decorating my mantle last night, I'm happy with it as of now but you all know how that can change quickly! LOL I am proud to say that I haven't spent any money this year yet on Christmas decor. I am trying to work with what I have around my house and have had from previous years. We've never had a mantle in any of the houses we've lived in, so I am having fun decorating one this year!
I wanted to keep the clock up since I love it so much, so I added some garland and ornaments around it. I might add a strand of battery operated lights to it.
Here is a closer look, I kept the brown sconces from Kirkland's that I always have on the mantle, I added two finials that I previously had in the foyer and a Santa that I got a few years ago at Target. I swagged some garland that I added ornaments, ribbon and sparkly snowflakes to.
Here is a close up of Mr. Santa I think he is so cute! I love the colors on him.
I always have to add a touch of animal print to everything!
I added the stockings to the garland. I will be on the lookout for stocking holders when they go on clearance.
I dressed up the candles with some leopard print ribbon and a fleur de lis.
Well that's it for today! I hope you enjoyed my Christmas mantle, I will be working on the rest of the house this week. Be back soon!!
