My Christmas Mantel {or joy to the world}

With Christmas fast approaching, I've started to decorate. We had very few decorations to begin with, so I've been creating up a storm lately. My first pride and joy I'd like to share with you is my faux mantel's Christmas revamp. 

I made the yarn wrapped treas, the "JOY" letters, and the coffee filter wreath. We already owned the hurricanes and I filled them with ornaments from Target's Dollar Spot.

Here's the details on the coffee filter wreath, the yarn wrapped letters, and the yarn wrapped trees.

Happy last day of November! Welcome to the Advent season.
