Christmas Mantle

O.K. So I don't have a mantle. I really didn't think I needed  one, until I saw some pretty  fabulous mantles out there.  I have been inspired !  I see one in the near future. Meanwhile this is my version of decorating our Christmas Mantle.

I recently made this wreath out of cupcake liners and half way through the project I realized I don't have much patience for this. I ran out of cupcake liners and  I couldn't find anymore. I had to make do with what I had. In the End the wreath is beautiful, I am glad I did it !

I love Burlap....I've seen these banners pop up everywhere, so I decided to do one out of burlap, not really knowing what I was going to do with it, of course I went searching around the house and found these cute trees I had bought awhile back, I put them on, I think it looks quite cute on the Island Counter. I have yet do a cake with a small banner on it. Coming soon.

As for the So call runner....it's just material I bought at the craft store.
My kids are always fighting on where they're going to sit so I made them these letters, they were so inexpensive, made out of cardboard and fabric, now they each have their own chairs. FINALLY, no more fighting for lunch and dinner.
