My 2012 Christmas Mantel

Today I want to share with you my Christmas Mantel.

 
 
Here is a closeup of the top of the mantel.
 
 
 
 
Here are my homemade stocking holders. You can find out more about these here.
 
 
My mother made the stockings for us years ago and she also made Emily's stocking.
 
 
I made the red and white yarn wreath last year. You can see a video about this wreath here.
 
 
 
Here is a closeup of the wreath.
 
I have it hanging on my faux window that my husband made for me.
 
 
 
I decided to put some pretty wrapping paper from Hobby Lobby behind the top of the faux window. I love how it came out!
 
 
Behind the window is a snow blanket and some battery operated LED Martha Stewart lights. The three pretty red birds are from Hobby Lobby.
 
 
 
I wrapped my candles with some sheer green ribbon and used some card stock die cuts from My Minds Eye Lost and Found paper collection.
 
I have had the snowmen in my collection for years.
 
 
For the front of the fireplace, I hung our fur babies stockings on the fireplace cover.
 
 
This wooden snowman was purchased at a craft show a long time ago.
 
 
I added some colored balls and gifts to my red lanterns.
 
 
 
Here is another overall view of the mantel. 
 
 
If you have any questions, please let me know. I will share the rest of my home later this week.
