Now that Christmas is over, I have finally taken down both my formal and fun Christmas mantles. But as I was packing up the holiday decorations, I put all my little snowman figurines in a big grouping on the table and I just couldn't wrap them in paper and tuck them away.. not just yet.
These little resin cuties are from the dollar store!
|Aren't these adorable? My mom made them out of dried gourds!|
First I lined up my little snowman collection along the mantle..
And then added silver and red accents, like this bottlebrush tree and little sled (I got in a great after-Christmas clearance):
I also had this silver tree I found last year post-Christmas at Pier 1.
The silver snowflake swag was also a clearance purchase this year (I wish they had more than one, it is too skimpy for me!)
On the hearth I used some lanterns and the poinsettias I had leftover from my front porch. They have done well all winter, you can hardly tell they are a few months old!
I also had this cute board snowman (he is just a 1x4 with a notched neck and painted.)
I told you I have quite a snowman collection!
Not a bad way to bring a little bit of winter to sunny California!
Sharing at these parties.
