For years, I have done the same thing to decorate my mantle for Christmas. I usually can’t even start most of my decorating until we get our tree. I use the branches we cut off the bottom around the house.
Well, this year I didn’t want to wait that long since the season is so short. So… I marched myself right out to the woods behind our house and got me some decorations. (Be sure you read that last sentence with a strong southern accent. That helps to make it sound grammatically correct.) You can read about that adventure here.
I wanted some candles, so I placed two bottles with white candles on each side. I think I’m going to change them to red, to add some color.
The stockings were made years (really stretch out saying the word “years”) ago.
I wanted to do a glitter Nativity on the mirror, but mine didn’t turn out that well. I opted for this instead.
Next week, I will show you how I made the star garland and how I did the chalkboard.
Bright light just went on in my head! I just feel like it needs something to the sides of the chalkboard. I know what I’m gonna do! You (I’m pointing my finger at you) will just have to see next week.
So much more to do! Gotta go so I can get it all done before we go get our tree tonight!
Until next week, Jayne
Coming soon a Christmas tour of the house and something of the heart!
