I've decorated this mantel twice already. Am I the only person who does this?
While going through boxes I came across these new little trees that I bought on sale after Christmas last year. The sales lady gave me a funny look when I plopped 15 of these sweet little trees on the counter. So, I took the garland off that I had used for years and put up my little forest on the mantel, saving a few for other areas of the house.
This is actually a faux marble fireplace that I painted on the wall. The only real fireplace in this house is directly behind the same wall in the family room. You can go through either doorway into that room.
I've always wanted to hang my stockings from this fireplace, but it's a huge stone mantel and there is no way to attach them. I've tried the adhesive strips, but they won't stick to it. The stocking holders that sit on top of a mantel don't look rustic enough with this fireplace. I'm up for any ideas if you have any. I've tied them to the garland before, but I'm not crazy about that either. Picky, picky......
This is my husband's old truck that he played with as a child. It's old and rusty and is hauling a load of Christmas trees.
