Silver and Red Mantle

I changed up my mantle again this year.  I tend toward more formal decorations but also love having some fun with Christmas.   For no particular reason, I decided on red and silver. This is where my retro tinsel Martian trees come in.

Naturally, I just had to make a new banner. I mean it’s not like I’m crazy about making banners or anything ! I went with the word JINGLE.
Jingle Banner Letter
I cut the letters on my Expression using the Doodle Type cart and used glittered cardstock by Core’dinations. Also cut a snowflake from the Damask D├ęcor cart. Finished with some red and clear rhinestone strips from my stash.

I made another Christmas charger with the word “MERRY” and white vinyl tree.
Hurricane Vase, Snowflake Ornaments
Dollar Tree DIY footed hurricane vase, Epsom salt, cracked glass ornaments I picked up at Restoration Hardware on an after Christmas sale,  and red and silver snowflake ornies  from Michaels.

Tinsel Tree and my North Pole project.
Charger, Tree, Topper
Naughty or Nice charger, Tinsel Tree, mercury glass candlestick and Martha Stewart tree topper nested in a clear glass votive.
Michaels Votive, Restoration Hardware Ornament
I found these stemmed votive holders at Michaels on clearance for $3.99 and loved the pattern and rhinestones . Plopped a cracked glass ornament inside and it reminds me of a snow globe!
