I added real branches for some interest and also to hang my glass icicles. I hope you can see them in the photo here. Some are from Martha Stewart and some are from Dept. 56.
Two large cylinder vases full of glass ornaments anchor each end of the mantle, my handcrafted pine cone topiaries, and candles in the center
I used a cedar garland with lights across the mantle, it really softens up around the vases and topiaries
I've been getting some questions on the burlap Noel Banner that I made. I haven't done a tutorial on it, but Jen has a great one HERE. I love the little rusty jingle bells tied on the ends.
A view of the tree, you can catch the details HERE.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you're inspired!
