Christmas DIY: Mantel, Punch Art, $1 iPhone case

A few new things for the season to show you today. First up, my Christmas mantel as it stands now. I have four stockings on order, but they're a different color green and red, so I'm not certain if I'll hang them up until Christmas morning. I may decide to do a banner instead.

The tall candles, angel, short candles, Noel letters and pine cones all came from Christmas Tree Shops. I love the Noel letters - they are perfect:

I used the same wire tree I'd used for my Halloween mantel and added crystal bead ornaments to make it fit the season:

I also made new punch art for my frames.

The snowflakes and the circles were punches I had (snowflakes are Martha Stewart). 

The stars I cut using my Slice Basic cartridge.

And I'm rocking a new insert for my $1 customizable iPhone case:


  1. The mantel looks awesome! I especially love the character it gives having the different levels, with the tall candles and the shorter noel... I love it!
