I got everything on this mantel second hand from Goodwill, Facebook Marketplace, and antique stores. The garland, my most recent addition, only cost $5 at my local indoor flea market! The mantle clock is over 100 years old and was given to us by my husband's parents. I love how it seamlessly goes with the rest of my decor.
Here's our front door. The garland around the front door is made from an upcycled artificial Christmas tree. I love lanterns. I ended up buying them new and putting artificial candles with timers in the top ones. They look lovely in the evening.
Here's what it looked like at night before I added the garland.
A vintage lunch box and thermos, bottle brush trees from Walmart or Target. I can't remember which... and unmarked little vintage figurine house from a yard sale.
Warm white led twinkle lights should be left up all winter long, in my opinion.
Here's the effect the garland and the lights have on the inside of the front door, through our frosted glass windows.
Whenever I find a vintage thermos at Goodwill I have to pick it up and add it to my growing collection.
And lastly, a view from my bedroom window that I had absolutely nothing to do with ❤️
