I don’t know what kind of bug has bitten me, but I can’t WAIT to decorate for Christmas this year. And you better believe I’m starting it on November 1st at 12:01 am. I already have an amazing plan for my mantle. But unfortunately, fall comes before winter so I have decorated my mantle first with Autumn in mind.
I used some extra burlap ribbon I had to add texture and interest. I didn’t want to cut it so I folded it and rolled up the rest, hiding it behind the floral picture I bought at a flea market.
The garland was made out of a bag of mini pinecones I bought a while back from hobby lobby. It was a couple of dollars for a bag and I just wrapped string around them. I didn’t even glue it. Everything else was stuff I had shoved in my ridiculously over crowded craft closet. That I still need to finish cleaning out.
So today, count your blessings not your burdens.
