“Magical” Christmas Mantel – update

Posted on

Remember my “Magical” Christmas Mantel post where I said I redid the mantel three times before I was happy with it?  Well, it’s four times now.  It’s a sickness.  I can’t help myself. 😉  THIS is the final mantel.

The Bell Garland came from my friend CereusArt. Check out her Etsy shop for really cool coastal decor accessories and beach themed gifts!

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving.  My family and I definitely did!  I have declared going out for dinner on Thanksgiving our new family tradition.  The restaurant, Red Rocks, had a fantastic buffet with traditional turkey day fixings, plus oodles of other yummy options.  It was perfect.  (And I didn’t have to eat meat!)

I didn’t shop on Black Friday.  Back in the day I would have been out the door at the crack of dawn with a game plan.  These days, my game plan is waking up after the coffee has been made and the kids have been fed.  Sleep has trumped shopping.  I don’t know if that is good or sad. : )

But we did get the Christmas lights up outside, and the house and tree was decorated to the sounds of Trans Siberian Orchestra.  I made a wreath for the door inspired from ideas I have seen on Pinterest.

The wreath started out as pool noodle that I ducted tape together and wrapped with yarn.  The “poinsettia” are made from felt, decorated with small christmas ornaments and dried flowers.  Tis the season!
