It’s December and time to get the Christmas decorations up and the lights strung. I enjoy taking my time putting the ornaments and decorations out, I don’t like to rush through it. I also like to change things up a little each year. I never stray too far from my love of the traditional red, green and vintage decor, but I like to use them in different ways and locations each year. Today I’m sharing my faux fireplace mantel decor (remember I don’t have a real fireplace so I use my entertainment unit). The centerpiece this year is this button Christmas tree in a frame that I made last year.
I made it from my extra stash of buttons, a frame I already had and Christmas Scrapbook paper for the background. Very easy to make, but makes a wonderful impact. The frame also has a red ribbon on the back so I can hang it on a wall, door or mirror. But, this year I decided to use a clear plate holder to prop it up.
The same with these two ceramic nutcrackers.
This wooden decorative pitcher was a thrift store find. I thought the tree cutouts were a perfect holiday look.
This gold wire Christmas tree is a little more modern than my usual style, but I received it as a hostess gift years ago and I really like it. I can put it just about anywhere in the house and it brightens up that area.
I really like the overall look of the faux mantle. I kept many pieces from my fall mantle (click here), so I didn’t have many holes to fill.
Stay tuned for more posts as I share my tree, dining room and outside decorations with you. Happy holidays and decorating!
