{Christmas Mantle} Wintery White

It's time for our Mantle Party today, as the third day in our Christmas Cheer Holiday Link Parties! Hooray!
Over Thanksgiving break when I was home in California, we decorated our mantle for Christmas. We're keeping things very white, natural and wintery by using white candles, fresh greenery, and a little sparkle thrown in the mix, too.  Here she is...





To create a garland, I reused our pinecone garland I made last year by buying pinecones, spray painting them white and sprinkling them in glitter:

 Our chunky white candle holders sit on top of some stacked Christmas books:

White Christmas tree candles sit on varied-height candle stands...

Our family picture from last year's Christmas cards is framed and front and center...




Best part is the only thing we bought new for the mantle was the fresh greenery, coming in at $4.99. We had everything else! My mom and dad were happy campers about that one (:

Have you decorated your mantle for Christmas yet? Or if you don't have a mantle, what creative solutions have you found in decorating this season?

It's time to link up with Michelle over at Ten June for our Mantle Link Party! Link up your mantle {or whatever you use as your mantle!} and then stop by other links to see what they came up with.
