Today we are each going to share our Christmas mantle decor…
Normally for my Christmas mantel decor I include greenery and my Santa collection, which is not nearly as big as my mother’s, but very sentimental as they were given to me by my grandma. This year I still wanted to use these elements, but I wanted to incorporate some more rustic items as well. I was just ready to do something new
I thought that these mini trees with burlap would make a great addition on my mantel and I feel like it pairs nicely with my existing balusters.
I also got these scented pine cones, which not only smell like Christmas, but I loved the idea of putting them in these glass jars. They go great with my Santa’s and greenery.
I found this great grape vine wreath at Michaels, which was an amazing deal…I added Christmas lights, which I think help really bring it to life.
I also love our stockings that we got at Pottery Barn years ago at an after Christmas sale.
All in all I am extremely pleased with how my mantel turned out this year, and I am so happy that I decided to change things up a bit.
I just finished decorating my fireplace mantel for Christmas, and I couldn’t wait to share it with you!
I try to change up the mantle decor every year. I usually stick with a traditional look…last year I used turquoise, antique white and wood. This year I’ve used some pieces of my newest obsession…wait for it…MERCURY GLASS! I know you think I’m crazy but I just love it. I spray painted some of the pieces with Looking Glass spray paint and I purchased some other pieces.
I added other shiny elements from my collections. Traditional green and red seemed to pair perfectly with the mercury glass. I especially like this happy green. I was fortunate to purchase the three foot jeweled cone trees for $5 each a few years ago. I use them on each end of the mantel.
