I was invited by Jen from House of Wood to join her mantel blog hop. I have loved seeing all of the other blogger’s mantels so far.
I think I am the last blogger to decorate for Christmas. I don’t know why I drag my feet every year because I really do love Christmas. It is probably because I am always neck deep in other projects and I keep thinking “when this next project is done I will decorate…” But there is always another project :)
This is the first time decorating my mantel for Christmas since I gave it a mini makeover. I am loving the barn wood top I added with all the greenery!
This was my first time trying the tracing chalkboard trick. Normally I free hand things but I doubted my ability to draw the perfect deer.
I use this chalkboard to cover up our TV when it is not in use. I needed something light weight and easy to pop up and down. I spray painted a foam core board with chalkboard paint. It is perfect!
Now I just need to tackle decorating the rest of the house…..
Don’t forget to check out the other bloggers!
