Love, Love, Love these white trees..... Making a Christmas Mantel!

****** Updated to add some more pictures!******

Somehow December brings out the best of the crafts!  I love making things and Christmas decorations are no exception!!  Today I made these Christmas trees!  The two tall ones on the ends are covered in a bumpy, stretchy fabric that is sold near baby fabrics in Joanns... (fleece type), one is covered with little white ball fringe and two are covered with fake snow!  I added a few more snow globes and some lights, put some snowflakes on the mirror... and hung some snow flakes below the ledge.... I think I am done with this part but we will see!  Right now I am loving how it looks!  Hoping for snow soon!!!!  What are you making???

Now some daytime pictures.....

And Finally below is the finished product!!

Stay Warm!  Nancy

  1. Nancy, that is such a beautiful vignette. Love the trees you made.

  2. The fleecy/bumpy fabric is referred to as "Minky". It's really cute. I saw someone use a hot glue gun and spray paint over it on different surfaces to get that bumpy look too. Looks good Mom!

  3. Thanks to you both! ahhhh yes it is minty fabric!! It feels like mink it is so soft!!!

  4. wow! what a neat fireplace, i don't think i've ever seen anything like that step down part. it looks fabulous all festive!

  5. Thanks the house is 110 years old and the fireplace is original to the house, we just put a gas fireplace insert in this past year! Thanks for looking!
