Winter-themed Mantle

When Christmas decorations come down, the house can feel a little "blah", so I like to add a few wintry decorations. 

I use my plate for so many seasons!  I love changing out the verse.

I made my paper snowmen family 10 year ago or so.  They have held together nicely all these years.  I simply tore cardstock, "aged" it a bit with a teabag, then added sticks, carrot nose and a tiny scarf.  I painted a simple terra cotta pot white, then added tiny pinecones inside.  I just love it!

This was my first year to use snowflakes.   An obvious choice, but something I didn't think of until I saw it on Pinterest.  In the past, they've always just been Christmas ornamnets. My grandma made them throughout the years.  (They are "tatted".)

This picture from Pinterest inspired me.
