I like to keep things simple and easy on our mantle for Christmas.
With a few quick add ins, the mantle was looking festive and sparkly!
I began by draping some faux pine greenery over our large antique mirror. Then I hung a Christmas wreath that I made a year or so ago over the mirror (I'll show you close ups of that in a bit).
I borrowed a trick from my friend Celestina over at Southern Day Dreams,
and used an over the door wreath hanger to suspend the wreath from the frame of the mirror. I picked up the hanger up for next to nothings at Hobby Lobby. Only problem was it was black, and too long!
So, I just bent the metal to shorten it up a bit, and spray painted it creamy white, so you don't even notice it peeking over the top of my wreath!
I added this beautiful glittery angel, given to me by a friend last year (love it!)
Year round I keep the tall wood candle sticks on either side of the mirror.
I painted them my signature creamy shades.
A roaring fire keeps us warm and cozy!
The mercury glass votives are also a year round staple. I just love mercury glass, and can't seem to get enough of it!
I love the reflection of our tree in the mirror!
The frosty white looking wreath was made with the addition of pinecones, mixed faux greenery, and my large glittery paper roses, made from vintage sheet music. Topping it off is a large wood "W" for our last name,
which I painted silver and coated in clear glitter.
On the left of the mantle is our Eiffel Tower clock for a Frenchy touch!
The only thing I would change if I could would be that red brick!
I am not a fan of it, to say the least! But "someone" in our house is.........!
So there you have it, my easy peasy sparkly-festive mantle!
I'll get one more post in before Christmas, I want to show you my Christmas hutch next time.
Hard to believe it is just 4 short days from now!
Wishing you all a peaceful holiday season!
