Whimsical Snowman Mantel 2015

It's that time of the year again! I have been decorating for days and I'm finally done! I decided to go with a whimsical icy snowman theme this year on my mantel. I have always had a thing for snowmen and have used them in my Christmas decor over the years. I found the snowmen at Kirkland's this year and designed the garland and wreath around them. 

I will be sharing more pictures of my house soon!

Enjoy!

So pretty! I love the red, green, and white color scheme with the addition of the snowmen. I also love the fullness of your garland. Can't wait to see more Kristen and thanks for sharing!

What did you use to attach the wreath to the mirror and the swag to the mantle? I have used fishing line in the past for my wreath but it always seems like such a chore. Thanks for any ideas.

Hi Kristen,
Do you make and ship items? I've been looking for something like your mantle garland posted on Nov 30th. I usually by garland from Frontgate but they no longer have alot of items in the red and chartreuse color combination which I have been buying over the years. I'm looking for a mantle garland and a centerpiece similar to what they currently have online. Please advise.
