kraft + red I've done this two Christmases so far. Christmas 2012 was kraft paper with red/white polka dot paper wrapping. Christmas 2009 or 2010 was kraft paper with red/white polka dots and vintage dictionary pages.
Christmas mantel love all the greenery and potted trees with stars and baubles, mirror draped in mini swag and candle staked fireplace. Fresh and adorable should do this for my window as have no mantle. Guess I need a house with many fireplaces :)
