Christmas Mantle 2013

Garland on fireplace mantle decorate for Christmas.
Welcome to my Christmas mantle this year. I went with super traditional red and green, with a bit of gold metallic mixed in. What’s most exciting about my mantle though is that I decorated it for the holidays without buying anything new! After shopping around the house for items I liked, using last year’s Christmas ornaments and repurposing branches trimmed from the Christmas tree, I had a pretty display.
