Christmas Mantle – 2011

This year’s mantle started with making a big boxwood wreath.  I wanted something that would really fill the space over our fireplace.  Simple brass candlesticks with red candles, tea lights, and greenery finished the traditional Christmas look that I wanted for this year.Mantel3

Red, green, and gold are my favorite Christmas colors.

The tea lights add a pleasant glow at night.

I get so much pleasure out of our Christmas decorations.  A fire in the fireplace would be the perfect finishing touch for this room.

  7. Your mantle is so pretty Paula! I’ve always wanted a large boxwood wreath, but the ones I find are just too expensive so I haven’t gotten one. I too love, red, green & gold!!!
