Christmas mantle

This shelf in our dining area is one of my favorite things to decorate for the seasons. It is one of the first things to see when entering the room.  I made it a few years ago from pine boards and antique glass door knobs. 



Here it is all decked out for Christmas.


Red J O Y letters nestled in some greenery


a vintage metal tray with a bingo card from Jenni Bowlin, a vintage #5 flash card, a metal 2 and some glittery Christmas trees


a felt snowflake framed with some scrapbook paper, tucked in some more greenery


To finish out the room, I hung some glittery snowflakes and small balls from the light fixture.  We also wrote our Christmas fun list on the chalkboard doors.  A great reminder of all the fun things we want to do this season.
