Holiday Mantle

.
My mantle is all decked out for Christmas.  After Thanksgiving I took down all of the Fall decorations shown here.

Here's my empty mantle before:

Much, much better.

The glass candlesticks are from CB2 and are really inexpensive - they range in price from $2.95 - $4.95 each.  Can't beat that!  I bought the red balls at Pottery Barn.  They have hooks on them and can also be used as ornaments.  The green balls I've had forever and are usually on my mantle year round.  The mercury glass birds came from Target last winter.

I made the glittered 'PEACE' banner using cardboard, glitter, and a ribbon to string the letters together.
