Snowflake and Mercury Glass Christmas Mantel

Christmas decorating is in full force here!  We’ve almost completed the outside {one deer left to plug in!} and I worked on the inside over the weekend.

As always, I started with our fireplace mantel in the family room.  I love changing this over to a Christmas mantel.

This year, I went with a combination of mercury glass, pine cones and snowflakes.  I moved my new mirror onto the mantle and used it as a starting point.  Then, I added the pine cone garland.

Mercury glass vases, candle holders and animals were added next. I really love the hive texture on the large vase.

To keep with the natural vibe of the pine cones, I added gilded wood pieces to a small glass vase.

The little clips are actually stocking holders but those haven’t been unpacked quite yet :)  The last addition was the little snowflake clings to the mirror for a fun touch.

It is definitely starting to look like Christmas around here!
