Merry Christmas lovelys!
Thank you for joining me on my second holiday home tour. I hope this blog post finds you in the middle of all kinds of holiday bliss!
Today I have teamed up with 5 other ladies to show you our mantels decorated for Christmas.
If you are following the tour in order, you just came from Kristen and Vicki’s home over at Timeless Creations
Don’t worry, if you missed their holiday mantel, you can see it by clicking here.
Today I have a few little embellishments to show you that I added to our Christmas mantel.
During this stage of life that I’m in, i.e. newborn in one arm leaving only 1 free hand to do all the things like writing this blog post, I’ve come to terms with the fact that I have to complete most projects over the course of a few days/weeks. So, now that my house is all decorated and I have a little time to spare, I can make another “pass” back through and add some finishing touches here and there.
After decorating my mantel back in November, I kept thinking it was missing something in the center. If you missed my first Christmas home tour where I showed you our mantel and new Christmas tree, you can see it by clicking here. Finally, after several paces back and forth in front of the fireplace trying to put the baby to sleep, I figured out what it needed. I hope you like….
First, I added some inexpensive silver ornaments from Dollar Tree to the center of the mantel and attached them using fishing line my husband so kindly shared with me. This is what they look like up close….
Then I felt like the wreath hanging in the middle of those massive elk horns needed a little more pizzaz so I took a pink scarf out of my closet and tied it around the bottom of the wreath…
Here’s a closeup of it…
And that’s it. Now I think our mantel looks more complete. What about you? Let’s just hope my 3 year old will leave the new hanging ornaments alone!
Next stop on the tour is Tara from Pennies From Heaven Home.
Be sure to check out her festive Christmas mantel and all of these other wonderful ladies on the tour! Tomorrow’s theme is vignettes and you won’t want to miss it!
