A couple of weeks ago I posted (here) about my desire for a non-traditional, colorful Christmas mantel.
This weekend I had some time to work on it and I think it's complete, for the most part. Since my previous post, I found these goodies to add...some from thrift stores and some from other stores.
So the idea was to spray paint all of the figurines an off-white color to balance out all of the color.
And here is the finished product.
And now for some close-ups and some details...
I strung these satin ornaments on some sheer cream ribbon. I made three clusters to add some dimension.
I love how my three choraleirs turned out once they were spray painted.
One picture I didn't get was this ornament garland. Aren't the colors perfect? I found it 60% off at Michael's. It adds just the right touch.
Love those candlesticks. You can read more about that re-do here.
Ok, so this tree isn't spray painted, but I love the sparkle it adds. I found it at Marshall's.
Spray paint? What would I do without it? Love ya, Frosty!
My village....that probably cost about $6.00 total.
Oh Santa, I like you so much better painted. It also holds a candle, if I so choose.
Ok, so for some other details. I had the teal and sheer fabrics already. I bought a strand of frosted indoor white lights and wrapped the sheer material around them to add a soft glow.
I'm in love...such a bright addition to the holidays and something I've never done before.
