Holiday Mantle

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!

I kept some of our regular decor up- the window and chalkboard.


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….

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!
