Finally I have a few moments to post some holiday decorating photos. I think I have spent way too much time looking at everyone else's beautiful posts, that I haven't had time to put together some of my own!
Let's start with my mantel. I gave you a sneak peak on Monday, and here is the finished mantel.
This year I am decorating with a more natural Christmas look. I used a faux garland, because when you use your fireplace, it is hard to keep a fresh garland alive.
The two burlap wrapped pots on either side are real Leyland Cypress trees, that I will plant outside in the back yard, after Christmas.
I used dried hydrangea from my garden, some burlap ribbon, old brass quails, a battery operated string of lights and some gold beaded garland.
I made the wreath above the fireplace, with trimmings from my back yard and added a big burlap bow.
In my next post, I will do a quick tutorial on making the wreath above the fireplace, as well as the one I have hanging on my front door.
Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly, fa la la la la la la la la.
