The mantel is a natural focal point for Christmas decorating. After all, that’s where the man in the red suit makes his entrance!
This year’s mantel matches the rest of our house, with white decorations setting a wintery scene.
These felt stockings in a lovely natural cream felt on sale at West Elm. I added felt circles with our initials to personalize them.
These little wooden houses are actually a work in progress. I’ve always wanted to have a Christmas village display, but I wanted to do something a little out of the ordinary. When my manager at work found these little bird houses at our local craft store, I knew they would be the foundation for my village. So far, I’ve painted them white. I want to add some wood embellishments, but we had some company this weekend, so I put up them up as-is. I’ll show you the finished village when I’m done!
By night, the candles light up our little winter village!
Wishing you happy holidays!
