Just wanted to share some photos of our completed holiday fireplace mantel decor….
A nice little jumble of earthy elements like pine cones, evergreen, and branches, all lit up with fairy lights, candles, and some silvery mercury-glass elements.
Homemade icicle ornaments continue the mercury glass vibe.
DIY tinfoil and glitter icicles….click here for the tutorial!
The crocheted doilies were made as a wedding present for us by the Texan’s grandmother and great aunt. They are just too pretty to use, so I framed them and hung them on the wall. Usually they reside in the guest bedroom, but they look so much like snowflakes that I thought they’d go well with the holiday decor here.
The old glass plant terrarium contains a miniature winter scene.
Oh, hi Frosty!
More icicles, doilies, and other odds and ends. A small rosemary tree makes everything smell yummy!
There is just something magical about mercury glass and candlelight.
The framed radiator grill that is peeking out from behind the display is my decorative disguise of the ugly center channel speaker that the Texan insisted must reside directly below the TV. Along with 600 hundred other surround-sound speakers carved into every corner and wall of the living room. I conceded that battle.
All the wintery goodness topped off by my glittery, reclaimed wood ‘CHEERS’ sign.
