Winter Mantle

So I've recently been fluffing the family room a bit and thought I'd show you what my mantle looks like right now.

It's pretty simple really - mostly white (which I love) and I added a bit of color with the branches.

The branches were a lot of fun to make. I just cut down a branch from a tree outside and spray painted it white.

Then I made the flowers out of napkins following this tutorial. It really is the simplest tutorial and requires only tissue paper or napkins, tape, and hot glue.

I printed out this verse from Hebrews which I had pinned here, and framed it in a simple white frame with a white matte.

I found the clear and green glass light covers (at least I think that's what they are) at a barn sale.

So, that's what it looks like right now, but it will probably change soon. I think I might have ADD.

Please tell me I'm not the only one who is constantly changing things around.


  1. you are not the only one constantly changing things around! ;) (see my blog). and see YOU soon!! xoxo.

  2. I like the branches with paper flowers, so simple yet cute! Can't wait to decorate a mantle again, right now I am living in a home that does not have one but will have one in a couple of weeks! YEAH!

    Thanks for sharing tutorial!

  3. I believe your "clear and green glass light covers" are actually glass insulators that used to be used on electric poles and wires. I know this because Dale collects them. If you ever get tired of them or want to get rid of them, let me know, I think he would be interested.:)

  4. I would second that they are glass insulators - I like to decorate with them, too!

  5. nope, your not the only one that changes things up A LOT!!! love doing it, it is my own home therapy!! Rachel Stoltzfus
