This is my holiday mantle for this Christmas.  This year I focused on Christmas ornaments.  Lots and lots of ornaments.

Most of the ornaments came from my local dollar store and Walmart.  I tend to buy large containers of sparkly ornaments on clearance after the holidays.  This seemed to put them to good use!

The two ombre glass features, the owl and the pinecone, came from Home Goods and totaled about $12.

The final aspect of the mantle décor is a strand of led Christmas lights with shreds of matching fabric tied around it.  I like the extra soft glow it adds and it also sets off the glitter and sparkles throughout!
