Winter Mantel

We wait until the Epiphany to take down Christmas.  All of the Christmas decorations came down this weekend and the mantel was looking rather bare and lonely.

I scrunched up some warm flannel scarves, and added a trio of candles,

hung up the vintage sheet music wreath that I made last month.

I placed a few spray painted and glittered branches into a large footed glass filled with moss,

and picked out a snowfort picture from last year to print out.  There hasn't been enough snow this year for forts.  I hot glued some floral picks to the frame.

And here's my mantel all cozied up for winter.

Thanks for popping in and decorating with me.
