The first thing I usually change for any occasion, is the mantel. I used my consignment shutter, some Dollar Tree flowers and heart-shaped vases, candles, a baske (recent consignment find) and updated my Christmas/Winter wreath from the front door, by adding a Dollar Tree red tinsel heart to it, and hanging it on the mirror above the mantel.
The only new items are the red doilies (Michael's) - I think they were $1.00 each, the red basket, and the red tinsel heart attached to the wreath.
This wreath was decorated with green ball ornaments during Christmas. I removed the ornaments, and hung a snowman in the center until I brought it in and attached the heart. So this wreath has already been recycled twice.
I will be sharing more posts this week that show you how to decorate without spending a lot of money.
