Help me!

My Christmas mantel is a work in progress. I started working on it Saturday, and I still can't get it quite right. John is no help. He can only tell me what doesn't look good. Right now, I know it looks kind of barren on the ends, but I'm not sure what to put there. Tall candles? I intend to hang our stockings at either end (two on each side), since with the way I had to rig my nativity, I won't be able to put stocking holders in the center at all. I need suggestions! Post me a comment if you have a good idea of something I can use to fill in the dead space.


  1. You definitely something tall on each side, but you may want to go "assymetrical" and put a couple tall, skinny candlesticks on the left side (but not the same height) and something not as tall on the right side. Do you have one of those sets of three candlesticks that are different heights? Maybe two of them on the left side and the other one on the right side?

  2. I was thinking candle sticks as well. YOu've probably already fixed this by now. I'm so behind on the press!! I have two if you want them!
