Bedroom Mantel

Good Morning!

I thought today it would be fun to link up to the Holiday Home Linky Party to participate in the Merry Mantels Party.

Although technically I don't have a mantel, the headboard shelf I made a while back works wonderful as one.

This arrangement is a favorite of mine from last holiday season.  I loved it so much I've been waiting all year to bring it back.  It was a snap to but together since I already had it all worked out.

One new addition is the silver beaded garland and a single snowflake.  I think it adds a nice touch and a little more sparkle which I can't get enough of this time of the year.

Pretty white bottle brush trees are placed between the glitter houses. 

A white feather boa is used for snow.  I love the soft look it gives the arrangement.
Tiny battery operated fairy lights are hidden in the feathers and gives the room a pretty glow at night.

It's so pretty, no wonder I've been waiting all year to set it up again.

Have a great day,

Come join the Merry Mantel Party
