2012 Holiday Mantel

Hi everyone I am super excited to share with you my holiday mantel this year.  It all started when I decided to make my wire tree ornament holder.  I knew exactly what direction I wanted to go in.  I wanted a little more modern touch with rustic browns and greens and gold shimmery accents.  I always try to use as much stuff as I can that I already own. 


After the wire ornament holder and frame were hung I added the beaded garland.  It is ivory and gold beaded garland that I had leftover.  I hung our stockings using Command hooks.  I have had these stockings since last year. I bought them after Christmas from Pottery Barn and had them personalized with names once Carson was born. I love how they are simple and I can embellish them how I like.  This year I grabbed these fun felt snowflakes from Target and pinned them to the stockings. The snow flakes were a $1 each!



I added the mini pine trees to each side. One I got on sale for $13 from PB after Christmas two years ago along with the gold mercury vase and the other is from Ballard Designs in a gold vase from Cost Plus World Market. The antler candle holder is from West Elm and the wooden reindeer  is from Target this year.  The white pine cone candles are also from Target.  I made a sweater sleeve for a pillar candle I had around the house and added some pine cones.






The gold mercury votive holders I have had for years and have no idea where I got them.  I purchased cedar twigs from a local nursery and draped those.  I love the fresh sent!  What do you think of my more modern take on my holiday mantel?
