Hey y’all…I’m so glad you’re here! I have been happily preparing my house for Christmas…and houseguests, parties and entertaining. For me this really is the most wonderful time of the year.

This week we have joined 27 of our blogging friends to share Christmas Ideas with you for Mantels, Tablescapes, Wreaths and Thrifty Crafts. Today I am excited to share my Rustic Christmas Mantel!

Rustic Woodland Christmas Mantel

I have been very inspired this Christmas season by all things woodland and moss.

I balanced the look with my favorite vintage trophies and mercury glass trees.

You may remember the other day when I confessed to y’all that I collect twigs and branches. This is just part of my collection displayed in a glass vessel.

This Woodland Wreath was truly the cornerstone for my mantel decor. I think the antique tin art piece is the perfect backdrop.

I’ve had these moss balls for a very long time. Every once in a while I mist them with water to keep them a little more fresh. The pinecones are another freebie from my own back yard.

These metal deer are super cute. I bought them many years ago at Tuesday Morning (are you familiar with this store) after Christmas one year for $1 each!

This driftwood tree was another serendipitous purchase. I love when that happens.

I am definitely a sentimental soul. A couple of years ago we purchased the largest Christmas tree…ever in our lives. It was a beautiful 14 foot blue spruce. This large wood slice was cut from the stump of that tree.

  10. Vicki, I love, love, love your rustic mantel! There are so many details that I just adore, but now that I’ve seen your milking stool, I’m not going to be happy until I find one!!! And I hate to be a dummy, but is that real moss on those balls? If so, I have plenty of it in the yard! Pinning and sharing your fabulous mantel display!

    1. Thank you so much Jane! The moss is real and I got it from Hobby Lobby…we’re jealous you have so much in your yard 🙂 Good luck on your search for the milking stool. Let us know when you find one!

    1. I try to incorporate sentimental pieces into my Christmas décor when I can. Thank you Amy!

  14. Vicki, as I read your post and looked at all the gorgeous photos, I found myself shopping. I love so many of your vintage and serendipitious finds — the trophies, the mercury glass, the antique tin art piece, the driftwood tree… It’s all so beautiful.
