DIY Christmas…part 2: Beautiful Christmas Mantle
It’s done! I knew as soon as I got started on both the old window and the nutcrackers that I would be doing the mantle the second both dried.
What do you think? It’s the biggest diversion from what I’ve typically done, but I must say I am loving it.
The little red cardinal on the wreath and the vase with my collection of vintage door knobs are two of my favourite details. The nutcrackers were a steal a garage sale a few years ago, I think I paid $1 for the pair, but they weren’t in the best condition. It’s amazing what some paint can do!
I hope you’re inspired to give your Christmas mantle a little something different this year.
