Jingle Bells in Red, Gold and Green
Rhinestone Sparklers - Jewel Crystal, Jewel Aurora
Mulberry Roses - Medium and Small - Red Velvet
Mulberry Cherry Blossom
Organza Ribbon - Red
Stickles - Crystal and Frosted Lace

here are some close ups

The image on the Topper
I added gold pearls for bells on his boots, stickles frosted lace to the fluffy bits and glossy accents and glitter to the bauble, along with three red pearls for the holly berries all available from the Hobby House

Here you can see those rhinestone sparklers, the jingle bells and the glitter

Some more of those jingle bells with the ribbon, twine, roses and cherry blossom
