My Ice Castle Mantel

Busy busy busy..............................

Last night I started on the mantel ( I'm so late this year that I think I'll keep everything up until Valentine's day lol ) just stick a couple of red hearts here and there

White and Silver - and lots of glitz

I bought the star from the dollar store a couple of years ago - think it's one of my favourite decorations

3 different sized glitzy trees
the white tree also came from the dollar store - just might be my second favourite decoration - it sparkles though you can't really tell from the photo

I normally use garland - this year I just poked silver glitzy flowers all along the bottom and then added some
white poinsettas
Isn't it serene - almost ethereal like?
Ok - so now this is where I go mental with my mantel.......................
I don't quite get the concept that LESS IS MORE - LESS IS MORE - LESS IS MORE -
It's perfect the way it is - completely what I was going for - and then I go and do this

Get them off Suzan - you don't need things dangling from the mantel

Oh wait - she's not finished yet -
lets take the dangling ornaments off - and stick a small wreath with looks even more ridiculous

actually lets just go back to the way it was originally and call it a day

 but by now it's dark outside - so let there be light

it looks so pretty lit up in person

stay tuned - there's aproximately 3,354 more projects to do in 2 weeks
