Here a few pictures of my mantel. This year, I did more of a "warm" and "cozy" mantel. Last year, I was all into the glitter and the "glow". I have a plaid ribbon intertwined with the lit garland. I bought these cute felt "mitten" ornaments and hung them on with berry balls on both ends.
Are you like me? I have been around the blogsphere looking at some AWESOME garlands and I want to sell all of mine on Ebay and start a new. However, that is not possible, so I change up just a few things and it feels new!!!New ribbon, a couple new ornaments....woila..a different look!
Do you want an EASY craft to do with your kids? Make snowflakes..they are so festive and fun!!! All you need are paper and scissors. Add a little glitter and your windows can be a winter wonderland!!! So fun...I made a few, too!!!
