Happy 3. Advent! How is the Christmas hustle and bustle going for you ? I have started work this past week and boy am I hating life! Today I'm sharing the first part of my Christmas Mantel with you. In accordance with our theme this year (red and silver) I have added some red and silver pieces to the natural greenery I used.
I went out back and cut some pine branches from the tree (how convinient) and placed it atop the wooden beam. I added pine cones from back home and from AL. The deer used to be white, but I spray painted it.
The nuts, berries, and pears I collected on walks with Bella. Free is good. I spray painted some of the pine cones silver.
The silver Santa gives it a more refined look. The advent calendar I made and already showed it to you here. The birch wood is also collected from walks in the woods.
I spent all day today baking and cleaning-now I have to get crafting for gifts. Are you all set for Christmas? What do you think of my fire place decor? And don't forget to visit my Christmas round up post for more inspiration and ideas. Blessings,
