Metallic Mantel

Sparkle, shiny metallics and candlelight- our mantel this year is full of all three. By using what we had in our Christmas decor collection, I lined our mantel with candle sticks and votive candles mixed with shiny ornaments and our faux zinc "Peace" letters.

The confetti painted vases look great paired with the mercury glass votives and other metal candle holders.  I filled the large glass pillar candle holders with silver beaded garland and used white candles throughout.

I used a frilly white frame I had and dangled a few extra ornaments to add height to the middle of the mantel.

This is like plan "d" for the mantel this year. I tried a few different ideas and finally settled on this layout (for now). Who knows what might change before Christmas!

Just in case you were wondering- here is my mantel from 2011.

I'm linking up with The Lettered Cottage and Ten June for their mantel parties!

    I have only just found your blog through the handmade gift roundup and I seriously don't know why I hadn't found it earlier!! Your mantel is AMAZING, love, love, love it! Everything seems to go so perfectly together :) I wish I could say what I love in particular but that would be everything (a very long list). You are so creative! How I wish I had a mantel...

    Have a great day!
