Christmas Mantel

Well I'm a little late to the party, but I'm finally linking up to The Lettered Cottage's Mantel Party. I am so excited for all of the holiday linky parties coming up. I love looking at everyone's decorations and getting new ideas.

Our mantel this year is pretty much the same as last year, with the exception of a few changes. I love the way it looked, and I'm somewhat limited in what I can do since our TV is over the mantel - which really poses a decorating challenge. Regardless, I love the way it turned out and my favorite new addition is the adorable stockings that my sweet friend Faith made. They are beautiful and I'm really hoping she opens an etsy shop soon - she is so talented! :)
The mantel basically consists of a few DIY apothecary jars (I will post a tutorial on those Monday) filled with ornaments and floral beads, and some glitter trees and candles. Everything was very inexpensive individually but I think all together it looks very nice.
 Thanks so much for stopping by...Merry Christmas! :)
