Posted by & filed under Christmas, Crazy Christmas Crafter, Home decor.

 My Christmas decorations are almost all put up… I still have a few things I don’t know where to put, but we still got a few weeks! Since I don’t have a fire place this high-end table has become my “mantel.” I love switching out the decorations for all the holidays. So here’s my Christmas mantel… for now at least. I’m known to switch things up as the month goes on… does anybody else do that?
 I didn’t want to spend much on Christmas decor this year, so I used pretty much everything I already had. Those trees were from the dollar tree last year and the Wish sign was from Wall mart. The candlesticks I switch out for every holiday and I put the candles from my bathroom on top. All I did was roll the candles in glue and sprinkled them with glitter. :) I LOVE glitter! However my husband hates it… since it gets EVERYWHERE! lol
 The snow globe had to go. Everything always works better in sets of three…
 Of course there has to be a candy bowl… got to please my sweet tooth guests.
So there’s my Christmas mantel this year! The 4 blocks tutorial can be found here
Yay for Christmas decorations!! LOVE them! They make me so happy.
  P.s. I’m sad the months over! We had some really great guest bloggers during our Crazy Christmas Crafter event.  Come back tonight to see all 25 guest posters in a months recap!
You can still link up all your beautiful trees here. I’ll post some of my faves later in the week.

    I am the same way. I put my tree up on Saturday & I've been decorating & re-decorating ever since. My kids asked me last night when I was going to sit down & leave it all alone! =) I'm severly OCD & I just can't seem to be satisfied. Love the table … I do not have a fireplace either so I have an entry table that I decorate as well as my entertainment center (you'll have to see my blog for the story on that! … it's been my main re-decorating venture this week!).

    I love it! But my kiddos are just not ready for the candy bowl yet. I've been picking up little pieces of kisses wrappers all weekend!
