I finally got my Christmas stuff all put away. Well, almost. I decided to leave a few things out as "Winter" decor.
Today I'll show you my "Winter" mantel.
I added these larger felt snowflakes. I added some sparkly "snow" with some spray glue.
The snow angels are actually ornaments that I've found at a couple of thrift stores.
I think they are perfect for my "winter" mantel.
I took down my book page wreath from the mirror and added this vintage looking snowflake instead.
I made a "Winter" banner using some vintage letter images that I had on my computer.
I took down the mercury glass tree & added a third mercury glass candle holder instead. I covered the "faux" candle with some wide burlap ribbon I have.
I removed the smaller mercury glass votive holders I had in exchange for these larger ones. I added a few pine cones as well.
On the right side I added another felt snowflake that I added the sparkly snow to as well as another snow angel.
I love how my "winter" mantel turned out.
I will enjoy this for a couple of weeks before I break out the Valentine decor.
Tomorrow I'll hopefully show you my "winterized" china hutch. Or maybe I'll get a few of my cloches in a "winter" mode to show you.
Too bad we don't get any real snowflakes here in southern California (at least where I live). But a girl can dream. Or better yet, decorate in snowflakes.
