Usually I start with our mantle when I decorate for the holidays. But this year I saved it for last. I didn’t really have a vision for it and so went with what I did know and decorated other spaces first.
When I made it to the mantle I was in the holiday decorating mood and ready!
But I dressed them up.
New chalkboard art (love my bistro pen) and taped up some music sheet bunting to the window to add interest and height.
Then I layered in the holiday items….
Burlap tree (tutorial here)…
Faux greenery and this adorable holiday cloche (tutorial here)….
I even bought us new stockings this year from Hobby Lobby.
More white and gold with this cute noel sign I made (the finials cut off from our vanity posts, painted! No wasting here!). I added this rustic white lantern as a contrast to the glam…
And voila! Beautiful!
What do you think of our holiday mantle? Have you decorated your mantel yet? I have a lot more holiday decor to share so make sure to come back next week!
