Colorful Christmas Mantel

After years of having all my snowmen on the mantel -- I wanted something different this year.  A few of the items I had, but most of it is new this year and very affordable, too.  The candles are battery operated and are from Sam's Club -

The wreath I had and it was from Pier One many years ago -

The presents, large green ornaments, and both the white and burgundy poinsettia garlands were new from Menards this year -

The bottle brush trees I have had and the white tree fillers I thought would be nice here since I hadn't used them yet -

I really like this look and am glad that I switched things up this year -

Love these candles - there is a 6 hour timer on them, too --

Little shelf next to the mantel -

The extended look with my Mittens & Skates tree in the corner -

I hope that you have enjoyed this year's mantel -

Lucy is enjoying the decorating this year.  She has discovered great uses for the totes that appear for a couple days to unpack in our home -
