I am one of fifteen bloggers who are participating this week as we share with you Everything Christmas…Mantels, Porches, Decor and Complete Home Tours.
I’ll highlight the pillow in my home tour later this week.
While I still have my Porch and my Home Tour to share, today I am highlighting my Christmas Mantel Decor.
I don’t know about you, but this season has been crazy. How I have made it this far in one piece, I have no idea. But I do know that part of it is because once I can finally sit on my couch in the evenings, I can take time to admire my mantel.
I know that sounds cheesy, but I do so love the view, with the lights. Very relaxing and calming.
I wish I was a better photographer so that you could truly take in what I do each night (well…when I am not traveling).
But the lights are not all that I love.
I am most proud of the wreath.
Why you ask? Because first off, it was a steal at Hobby Lobby last year during the After Christmas Sales. And second, because I added the tulle myself, of which I usually do a terrible job at managing so that it looks good. But I think it turned out ok. As you can see, the Turquoise B doesn’t really quite fit there, as it relates to overall design, but I wanted to keep some turquoise somewhere and it seemed like a great spot.
While I love the Stocking Hangers, I am not a huge fan of the Stockings themselves. My search for new ones this year did not prove to be very successful. So next year…I will be on a mission to find some…even more so than this year.
And of course like every mantel, its about the accessories to complete the look.
I hope that you found some inspiration today. I would love to see your mantel. So send me pictures!
