Winter Mantle {Nesting Delights}

I don't like to jump right into Valentine's Day Decor for my "mantle" (aka bookshelf), so I between Christmas and Valentine's, I put up a simple Winter theme. Here's my Winter "mantle" for this year:

My frame backing is new this year-it's a faux pallet board. 

I was trying to figure out what to put behind my white berry wreath and after my first few ideas fell through, I found this pallet board scrapbook paper at Hobby Lobby! I also found an art board in the clearance section that was the exact size of my frame (16x20) and cost less than $1. So, I didn't even have to cut the board! I simply glued the paper onto the board. I made sure I cut the paper and lined it up, so you can't see edges. From a distance, it looks real.

The berry wreath is super simple to make, but you can see my very short tutorial here.

For my visual weight, I used the same snowy sticks I used for Christmas, but added frosted pinecones and yarn balls to the vase.

I used my Winter Art from a few years ago, as well as my snowflake tree. I needed another layer, so I stuck the mini lantern on a candle holder and loved it.

That's my little Winter Wonderland in the living room!

Delightfully Nesting,

  1. Hi April! I love your mantle, and I especially love the frame with the faux pallet above it. I had no idea it was paper and not actual wood! So creative!
