I whipped up some quick mantel decor yesterday, and I LOVE the way it came out. I know that we only lost 4 days or so on the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas, but it seems like we lost a whole month. In this house we don’t decorate for Christmas until Thanksgiving has passed, and I think it was just shocking that Sunday was December 1st!!
Anywho… back to the mantel!!
I knew what I wanted to do for the statement piece which was inspired by this on pinterest, and then I knew I also wanted to work in my names of Jesus garland from Lemonade Makin’ Mama. (which I LOVE by the way!! – if you want one, you’ll have to wait until next year :)) The rest was filled in with things I had.
I strung a strand of white lights behind the garland and across the mantel to help the garland show up at night, and because I love lights. The red trees and the framed print are from years past.
