Christmas Mantel

Happy December everyone.
I finished up on my Mantel today after going out and
harvesting some Winterberries ..
I started by placing three of my Old World Santa's that are different heights in the
center of the mantel..Draped my garland with two set of white lights across the full
length...I then placed my harvest of  Winterberries in the garland.
I had bought six bags of Ocean Spray Cranberries while shopping for Thanksgiving and
strung four of those bags on heavy black quilting thread..Draped them at different lengths across
the front of the mantel and my Christmas Mantel was done.


Thanks for stopping in for a visit to look at my
Christmas Mantel.
Come back when time permits to see more Christmas pictures from
the Olde Homestead...
Prim hugs,
Trena

Your mantel is so pretty! Do you string the cranberries raw or do you treat them with something?
Have a cozy night!

Trena, your mantel decorations are beautiful! It's funny, your mantel looks a lot like ours: rustic with stone. I'm still trying to figure out how to decorate our mantel since this is our first Christmas in our new home. Thanks for the ideas!

Hugs,
Pam
