In some ways I will be sad to see the end of the year of monthly mantels, but it will be nice to concentrate on other things too. My mantel will still change though through the year, but on a seasonal, rather than monthly basis. No doubt I will share those with you too.
So, this months mantel! My favourite in many ways because I love to decorate for Christmas, and this months includes snowflake twinkle lights which has to be good!
You might recognise the Christmas Tree Garland from last year. I made this 12 months ago and of course I had to use it again this December.
The other decorations are a collection of things that we already had. This year I did buy a few new ornaments for the tree, but otherwise I haven't bought anything really in terms of decorations.
I do love a fuzzy lights photo though!
Obligatory sideways shots, which I am guessing that some of you like - Mama's Mercantile! It seemed right to do one each way this month as it is the final mantel.
The details are simple little trinkets that wouldn't have found a home elsewhere this year. On the mantel though, grouped together I think they make a pretty addition to the room.
These felt pinecones were a "free gift" with Mollie Makes recently. I didn't really like them once I had made them as I didn't think they looked very pineconey. However, seeing them in the photo I like them better now! Fickle aren't I.
I did also take some photos in the evening with the lights on. I think that it looks lovely and warm and welcoming.
So, that is it for monthly mantels for 2015! Thank you for following along this project with me. I do hope that you have enjoyed it. I know that I have. Thank you too for your comments over the 12 months of posts, you have encouraged me to keep going.
I will leave you with the dancing Christmas Tree. He sings - Jingle Bell Rock! - and dances and flashes his lights. Very cute, very daft, very silly, and thankfully, not on all the time!!!
Hopefully these posts have inspired you to get decorating something in your own home.
