A Faux Christmas Mantel

We don't have a mantel in our home, but I decided to make a faux mantel to hang our stockings from.
Working with a very small budget I decided to use what I had.
I started out by making my mantel using a frame/mirror in my dinning room that has hooks on it.

Stringing garland greenery and battery operated lights over the hooks for starters,
I then added ornaments hung from ribbons...


finishing it off with a small gold bow and a diy pine cone ornament that I made years ago.


So the stocking are hung despite the lack of a real mantel.
