My Winter Mantel

Monday, January 21, 2013


My winter mantel started with the pom-pom garland.


Then I made the Pinterest inspired Valentine's Day art with 1 Corinthians 13: 4 - 8.  I'll be sharing my templates for this project later this week.    Here's the original design from Pinterest.


I collected some branches to make a winter arrangement with rusty skeleton keys, fabric flowers, and script birds.  


I'll also share the template I used for the script birds later this week.


The finishing touch - a few old books and a birds nest.


Oh, I almost forgot about the window frame mirror - It's something I've had for about 20 years and has a special story and history that really deserves it's own post - so stay tuned!


Don't forget to check back later this week if you would like the templates for the Valentine's art and the script birds.  I hope you are having a fabulous Monday!

I'm sharing today's post at:
