Makeshift Mantle

by - 7:25 AM

Sadly, we do not have a mantle in our home.  Every Xmas I wish we did.  Since we don't, I have to create a makeshift mantle of sorts out of the corner cabinet in our dining room.

I dress up the top of each year as if it were a mantle.  This year, I have a bunch of jars with bottle brush trees, a cloche, an apothecary jar filled with decorated matchboxes and this bird cage that is up year-round.  This year I added some faux greenery.
I added my star garland after I took the first picture.  I used some pre-cut, self-sticking stars and twine to create the garland.
The cabinet houses my snowman collection.  
I gave my vintage typewriter a holiday touch as well.

Yesterday we put up our outside Xmas lights.  I'm still in the process of dressing up our porch.
