Christmas is over, but there is still lots and lots of snow. So I’m being inspired by all the white outside and embracing the snow this January. I threaded the cotton ball snow onto thread and hung it up as snow as part of my Christmas decorations. I decided to leave it up for January and I have to say I kind of love it. The cotton ball snow inspired the rest of the mantel.
I wanted to write the word “snow”, so I found these in the dollar bins at Michaels for $1.50 each. They were neon coloured, so I just gave them a couple of coats of white craft paint, and then covered them in white glitter.
I love the subtle sparkle. Reminds me of real snow.
I kept the rest of the mantel really simple. I had a pretty white orchid in bloom, so I added it.
I also added some faux snow to some vases and added some creamy white candles. Fire and Ice.
I always love the cleanness, and simplicity of white after all the elaborateness of Christmas.
This mantel is simple, but I think really pretty. Instead of fighting the winter this year, I’m trying to embrace it’s beauty. With a simple snowy mantel, life really is a party!
