{Christmas Mantel}

This year's mantel is one of my favs! I collected silver trays throughout the year just for the purpose of making a wreath out of them at Christmas.

The trays are attached to the wall with 3M Command picture hangs. Lot's of them.

The candle sweater sleeves were left over from my sweater pumpkins at Halloween.

And, the Santa mugs always make an appearance somewhere.

A little sparkly, a little cozy.
