Junk N Treasure Christmas Mantle

Finally.
I finished decorating my house for Christmas.
I think.
Well at least the mantle is done.
I really like the way it turned out. 
I'll describe what I used first and then you can see all the photos.
I used the same shutter I've used for my other mantles I've done throughout the year. I added the JOY letters to it with some glue dots.
I used my rusty junk bucket I bought at one of my junkin' weekend shopping hauls and filled it with faux greenery, ornaments and lights.
I also put out my vintage red lantern.
I found a milk bottle stamped with the "No. 5" and found it to be whimsical and set it next to my rusty bucket.
I filled it with some faux snow :)
I then layered some pine garland, ornaments,lights and raffia along the top and hung my burlap stockings on a rope with clothespins. 
It makes me happy :D
I have some heavy candle holders that the rope is tied to on either end of the mantle.
I'll show you my Grinch White Tree as soon as I finish taking pics of it.
Check back later this week as I prepare some yummy desserts for my Christmas Eve party :)







 These last ones were taken at night
