My Christmas Mantel

I have finally finished decorating my mantel for Christmas...I am a little later than usual getting it put together.  I guess a little late is better than not at all, right? 

Here are some pictures of my mantel:




I decided to change up our stockings this year.  I have been wanting to for a while now, but was not sure what I wanted to do.  Then along came Pinterest and I saw an adorable mantel that used initials hanging over the stockings...so I decided to give it a try.  I found some plain letters, spray painted them with glitter spray paint, and placed them over the new (dollar store) stockings.  I am pleased with how they turned out.

I am linking up with the Holiday Home Linky Party.  Check it out and be inspired by some beautiful mantels.

That is a beautiful and festive set up. I also like the idea of the hanging initial in front.
