It’s the most wonderful time of the year………..
I always bring out every piece of my decor from their containers and lay them out to start the process. Every year is a bit different..This mantel is very simple and clean…needed for my small family room.
Thought the mantel needed a little boost-so I added a sewing box drawer I had painted and sanded a few months back and started playing with it……here is what I came up with…..
The poinsettias are from the dollar store-and the burlap bag was something the United Way gave me in Ambassador training! I knew once I saw the burlap it would be reinvented…. I still need to add a ribbon to it and fluff and play with it a bit…My stools are dollar finds from auctions painted and stenciled…The trick there–go to the tools part of an auction–i always seem to find cool boxes and stools that the men are not interested in!
The little mittens were on a package a few years back and I keep reinventing them each year…..Enjoy….I am linking up to Layla’s Mantel Party http://theletteredcottage.net/holiday-home-linky-party-our-christmas-mantel
