I love fresh greenery around the house at Christmas, especially on the fireplace mantle. All I did was clip cedar and spruce boughs from the trees out front and lay them along the mantle.
Cheap yet beautiful.
Throw in a few Nutcrackers, candles and faux red berry garland, hand made stockings, candles from Ikea and dollar store candle holders and you've got a dressed up fireplace ready for Christmas!
I made these stockings about 15 years ago still love the embossed velvet on the cuff, each person has a different "edge" on their cuff.
