This year's Christmas mantel is similar to last year's with a couple of additions.
I wanted to give it even more of a woodland vibe.
I added a wreath over the round mirror that's always over the mantel.
A trio of metallic acorns hangs over the mirrored center.
Four of these bronze coloured reindeer add to the woodland feel.
None of these lights are in a pre-lit form. I just wound ordinary strings of mini-lights through the garland and the wreath strategically hiding the wires and cords.
I'm still liking how Mr. Delight attached a curtain rod to the underside of the mantel.
Works great for the stockings!

The lights make the room so cozy in the evening.
The woodland feel of the mantel coordinates well with the Christmas tree.
