My Christmas (faux) Mantel

I am beyond excited for my first White Christmas! I am really missing Arizona but I do enjoy these amazing seasons for the first time in my life. Christmas really IS the MOST wonderful time of the year.
Remembering the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ and the true meaning of Christmas, Family, Christmas music, hot chocolate, presents, parties, treats, food, and FUN! It is such a special time and I really LOVE that we make it last all December long! (or even more! hee hee!)
I made some pretty sweet shelves in my living room and decorating them is so much fun! 
I made my own version of this sign from Barn Owl Primitives because as much as I loved theirs, it was a little out of my Christmas decorating budget. :( 
I just painted it a light aqua color and added white and red vinyl.
I used my Silhouette to make a few other things for the vignette. I really wanted something Christ centered so I made this nativity!

Two stockings down, two to go for our little family of 4! I obviously still need to embellish them but I’m kind of obsessed with the curly elf toe and the white velour and white satin fabric is so soft and scrumptious! I LOVE our stockings so far!
How cute are these little guys!? My swirly antler reindeer was made on my trusty ole’ Silhouette and of course I added some rhinestones to it! The cute little nutcracker, NOEL sign and the silver poinsettia garland came from Joann’s fabrics for 50% off. 
Did you notice my early Christmas present!? I GOT MY RUG!!!! YAY!!!
I really love how it all came together!
Where do you hang your stockings!?
