Our Christmas mantel 2013
Wood sign made out of 1x6 pine boards. Stain: with a color called "sunbleached" and wrote Luke 2:11 with a Sharpie paint pen. (She went with sunbleached instead of a darker wood stain 1. because of her dark chocolate wall and 2. because this stain has a silver, distressed look which goes with the rest of her silver/white decorations).

A single strand of unembellished garland is enough to make a festive statement without overwhelming a small space. Fresh eucalyptus is an ideal alternative to evergreens and is easily and inexpensively formed into a spectacular garland with rope and florist wire. Eucalyptus maintains its color when dried and provides a wonderful fragrance throughout the season.
