A swagged mantle is so Christmasy, the first time I did ours I just loved it. Maybe if I stop being so lazy and bah humbug I could have another go, there again all this snow could be considered decoration enough.


Very festive!

You might want to rethink using the conifer branches for fire starters- they'll contribute a LOT to the creosote buildup in your chimney. Creosote is probably the single biggest starter of chimney fires.


Maybe you could dip your leftover deer in paint and sell them for next year as a different color!!
