I decided this year to mix things up a bit and do something a little different on the mantel. Here's an idea of what we looked like last year...stars brightly shinning...
And this year it looks like this...a WinTer WOndeRLanD...
I opted not to decorate our playroom tree this year...lazy...so I had a bit of extra to add to the family room decorations. I added a bit of blue to the standard red and green and I'm thinking I kind of like it. It's a little more whimsy and fun. Reminds me of something off of the Elf movie...witch happens to be one of our all time favorites.
A lot of the big snowflakes came straight from the dollar store (last year)...and most of them in a package of at least 2 or more (we're talking CHEAP).
And just a few more bits of the rest of the room.
A little ball ornament can go a long way!
And because I just couldn't give up the stars...they're still shinning brightly, just in another room.
Fun to mix it up once in a while, easy way to get a new look with NO money spent.
How are you mixing it up this season?
