This Christmas our mantel is simple and rustic...

As I get older I'm seeing that simple is best. 

I find I only want to be surrounded by my favorite things. 

Truth is I have a lot of favorite things!

This mantel has some of my favorite pieces, some that stay up all year long like this ladder I made a while back using scrap wood and chair dowels.

The reindeer family came from one of my favorite antique shops. I can always find something unique and gorgeous in one of the many fabulous shops.

The vintage funnel tree I learned to make at Organized Clutter is one I will not sell. I've made several in the past but this one is the perfect size and shape and it's mine.

I draped fairy lights over the top of the mantel and it gives it a beautiful glow at night.

  2. What did you use on the very bottom of the funnel tree? I love the shape of yours very much. Thank you.

    1. Thank you so much Annette, this is my very favorite Christmas decoration. I used the leg of something that was broken. I believe it was a piece of a table let. You could also use a repurposed candle holder of some kind, you may just need to shave off the top so it fits inside the bottom funnel. Thanks for visiting!
