My Christmas Mantel

I have had a few readers ask me to post some pictures of my mantel, so I thought I would share a few with you!
In the middle of my mantel sits the Wine Cork Monogram K that I posted earlier in the year.  It sits on some bricks that I found outside of our home when we moved here 9 years ago.  I found the little glass candle holder on the right at a flea market this summer, and decided to add some green moss and one of the glitter in glass ornaments that we made.  On the other side is another one of our ornaments sitting on moss in an iron plant holder.
I strung some pine roping across the top, placed my favorite grapevine tree in a footed bowl, added an amaryllis, then tucked some pine cones and berries around.
I love my mantel most when there is a fire in the fireplace.  It just makes the room so warm and cozy!  How do you decorate your mantel around the holidays?
Okay, now I have a HUGE favor to ask!
