Hi there! I've been busy lately! I spent last week taking down the Christmas decorations, packing it all away, cleaning and then redecorating in a winter theme. You might think I'm LATE in doing so, but that's the way we like it at our house - we enjoy Christmas to the fullest and for a LONG time!
Starting with this one, my next few posts will show you what I've come up with for adding a frosty flair to a few areas around the house.
Today, we'll look at the fireplace mantel...
Once again, my Frosty Family makes an appearance...
Over the holidays, we received 3 sets of these cute orament-skis as hostess/host gifts.
I thought they looked perfect propped against my snowman family. Like us, they love to ski!
I also used two of my glass blocks with some white mini-lights(can't have ALL the lights gone after Christmas!) and snowflakes.
Snowboy joins his parents who are ready to hit the slopes with their skis.
I hung a large snowflake in the center of the round mirror and added other smaller snowflakes along the mantel and above the mirror.
The hearth is kept simple with a black lantern and a wooden vase containing brown grasses.
This is my first "winter mantel" since our fireplace makeover (click HERE to see that).
Hope you enjoyed seeing it as much as I enjoyed creating it!
