Christmas Mantle {Makeover}

I love decorating my mantle every year for CHRISTMAS.



It just makes me smile.



One of the reasons I enjoy it so much is because it's where I display my favorite nativity scene.



The nativity is the centerpiece of my living room.



And the SEASON.



If you're like me, you have a slight pinning problem. You know, a finger that keeps clicking "pin" on the very addictive website, Pinterest?



Can I get an "amen?"



While obsessively pinning I came across an amazing sign that I thought would be the perfect backdrop to my nativity scene.



So I pinned it.



And then I made it--with a lot of help from the hubs!



Here's the final product:



The hubs built the sign and I painted on the text. Yep, the hubs has got some mad skills. . .



I pinned it.

We made it.

And we love it.


Every time I look at my mantle I'm reminded of the true meaning of Christmas: the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.


The crazy thing is, He gave us the greatest gift ever on HIS birthday.


Wait, aren't we supposed to do the gift-giving when it's someone else's b-day?


Now that's some crazy love He has for us!


Merry CHRISTMAS!
