Rustic and Woodsy Mantel

Hello everyone,
This December has flown by...The living room mantel has been decorated for a week, This year the mantel is completely different from 2013.  The glitzy wreath on my sidebar is last year's mantel decor.  This year I am enjoying my rustic and woodsy look.
Plaid ribbon, pine cones and berries decorate this year's wreath.
I have been collecting Christmas Trees and deer for awhile. On the mantel I have two hurricanes with my mother's silver candle sticks and red candles. The red and green woodsy look is very traditional. My living room is rustic looking especially now with my new brown sofa. This year I also wanted to make a Christmas banner to hang on the fireplace. I have another post to give a close-up view and tutorial on the process to make my Christmas banner.

My Christmas Wreath is pre-lit and this photo the lights are not plugged in and the greenery across the mantel has pre-lit lights also.

The trees are in different sizes and some trees are glass and some are gold mercury glass.  Pine cones are scattered on the mantel and gold glittery deer are prancing in the greenery.

I turn the lights on the mantel and the Christmas tree every morning as soon as I get out of bed. I enjoying looking at the lights all during the month of December. I keep the Christmas tree up until the 6th of January and thank goodness I have an artificial tree and wreath...





Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
