Blue, Green, and Peacock Blue in Action

The sun finally came out- or actually I was at home during the hours when the sun is out- and got to snap some quick pictures to show you all my fully completed peacock colored mantle.

So here it is in all its blue, green and teal glory!

So was it worth the wait or was it a total let down? Let me have it.


More Christmas crafty items to come later this week- stay tuned.

Love it!! Everything looks great! I also wanted to do something involving peacock feathers... but they proved surprisingly hard to find in rural Arkansas. :-)

L said...

Worth it! I'm a little obsessed with peacocks myself, so I especially love the feathers. Where did you find your greenery? - other than the pine garland.

I love it! It's fun to mix up the decor - I wish I would have thought of this!

L- the greenery is leftovers from cutting our tree down. When we were searching for the tree I was collecting branches along the way. The other green stuff was actually what was left of an arrangement my boyfriend sent me- I just plucked out the pretty green leaves and stuck them in with the others on the mantle.
