Handmade Christmas Mantel (updated)

Hi friends, I'm sharing with you today my mantel decor.  I have to confess,
this is not my ideal mantel decor, but I had to use what I had on hand and that
includes this piece of art work.  Mr. M gave it to me for our anniversary and it's
not my particular taste, but I must be grateful.  I have future plans for it,
because I see potential in it.  Moving ahead...

I have kept it simple this year, I added a few handmade items and two small disco balls.  
I have added my third stocking and decided to go with no garland for now.
I added more greenery to the mantel what do you think?  Shall I add more?
We caught the Elf hiding behind the paper tree.
Tutorials for the stockings can be seen here
Tutorial for the wreath available here.
Tutorial for the glitter alphabet letters can be viewed here
and the tutorial for the book page trees is here.
Thank you for stopping by today, I am linking to:
