Anyway back to the point. On one of these said blogs there was a link to a mantel Christmas party. How fun is that?!? I am joining in on the party. There are so beautiful ones up and if you need some Christmas shove to get your butt in gear then go check them out.
Here is my Christmas mantel.
I was really inspired by elf. I love how elegant he decorated the store and it was using a lot of paper and other stuff. I had to make my own version of that. Plus as you all know I have to do this on the cheap.
Tinsel wreath I made. 3.50 to make. I love it.
I have yet to see a wreath with a banner. So I would like to think it was my idea and mine alone.
I made this little paper house.
I cut out little snow man and put them inside so when u look thru the windows you see them peaking out. When I was a kid I loved little things like this.
Mercury glass ornament balls and tea light holders.
I got a whole box of them (ornaments) for .50 at the flea market last weekend! SCORE!
Vintage Christmas card I printed off the Internet. One really huge ornament I picked up a long while ago. Not sure where or when but I know I have had it a while. The little snowflake was also a flea market find. Vintage tin ornament .10 ♥.
Another vintage Christmas card I printed off the Internet. Little vintage mercury glass bird that I adore.
I made the Christmas trees at the top of the candle holders. Martha has a tutorial on how to do it but it is very confusing. If you want to know how to make them leave me a comment and I will do a video tutorial. I love how they turned out. I think they need glitter tho. Another pic from the internet and another tin ornament from the flea market.
Last but not least my sweet little vintage deer. I don't know where he came from. I love him tho. I thought he would be cute a top this pine cone.
Thank you so much for visiting my mantel. I have more Christmas decor to come and some Christmas ornament ideas. Make sure to check back often!
