I am thrilled to be a part of the holiday mantle tour.
Our fireplace mantel in the family room is our main focus.
It is off to the side but it still makes quite a statement when you walk into the room.
I love the smell of fresh greens in my home this time of the year.
This year I collaborated with Lynch Creek Farms and was given this amazing garland.
My mantel is quite small so I can’t go crazy with too many pieces on it.
But it’s okay because I really do like to keep things pretty simple.
And I don’t like changing everything in my home either just for the holiday season.
I just changed my mantle a few months ago and still love the mirror and gate.
So instead of taking everything down I decided to keep those pieces as is,but add too it.
I love layering mirrors and frames.
Here I layered a mirror a metal gate and a chippy frame.
I love the color and patina on this old window frame.
I have another chippy window frame that I am using to frame out a vintage painting.
This wreath was made using color craft cotton balls.
It was very easy to make,I just glued these cotton balls using a hot glue gun onto this white styrofoam wreath.
And it’s hung using a little lace trim I found at the thrift shop.
Christmas decor,especially on a mantle can be simple and yet beautiful.
Stockings still need to be put up,but I don’t always add those until it get’s closer to Christmas.
Some years I add them to my mantel and other years I added them to our stair case.
I do have a large stocking that I recently bought this year.
It’s a little too large for our mantle.
It’s hung on an old chippy door that’s in the corner of our family room.
Do you decorate with Christmas stockings?
