I say real because I feel like I see so many beautiful pictures that seem so unreal. So here it is, pull-up on a stocking hanger from our elf. The lights on the right side because I can't seem to find a little extension cord to pull all of the lights up on the mantel.
So here is what we have...
I just used some clear glass things we had around to put some cheap ornaments in..
An old ceiling tile in a frame from a resale shop that I painted teal..
A shutter from Homegoods
Some real trimmings that we got for free..
And the brown cone trees were an after Christmas sale thing that someone picked up for me for super cheap!
So the truth of the matter is as much as I'd like for everything to be "picture perfect" that's not going to happen here because I'm a homeschooling Mama of four.
