Christmas mantel!

Our mantel is finally finished!!

I'm so happy with the way it all turned out and my husband is very more happy with the money I spent!!

So here it is...Christmas at the Alston's!

Here are some other areas in the house

Nope, still haven't painted the other curtain!

 The entry way

See more details about the entryway and our other Christmas decor here
  All the decor is from things I already had, the Goodwill or Dollar store!!

So far I'm only about $40 bucks in!! 

It was simple like using ugly stocking from the dollar store and buying an old sweater from goodwill

and making it into this

 Currently working on the kitchen and Eden's room!!

 Hope everyone has an awesome weekend!

Check out where I like to party
