Christmas Mantel

I'm sharing my Christmas mantel with you today.

As you can see I LOVE color!

I have a plain piece of greenery garland that I added lights to and then bought the fun ball garland from Target.  I added large glitter snowflakes.

Last year pre-blog my girls and I made these styrofoam trees following Eighteen 25's directions.
I spray painted old brass candle holders silver.

Last Thanksgiving my girls and I made this banner with my silhouette.  

I made a printable in my colors.

I love these colors too. Your printable is a great idea! I have some of these same colorful ornaments (probably from Target. I bought a tall glass jar this year and filled it with the balls for my dining room table centerpiece. I also added some coordinating ornaments on the chandelier above it. I'll be sharing it next week. So much fun! I just love Christmas.
