Christmas Mantles Inspiration & Tips

Wednesday, December 9, 2015

My favorite piece to decorate at Christmas time is definitely our mantle. Last year was our first Christmas in this house so I started from scratch. Luckily with Houzz, Pinterest and some $, I was able to put this amazing mantle together. Next year, I'm thinking it needs some votives, greenery, or maybe both.

As I've mentioned before, Byron really likes simple, so I stuck with a white and silver tree theme for our mantle. (Plus I had to add my two stags to bookend the tree!)

I love elements of light, so anytime there's candlesticks AND lanterns, I'm in love. Check out Our Southern Home for more inspiration. (Sidetone - this year I'm REALLY into plaid. I've bought so much - our house is starting to look like a house of lumberjacks.)

I'm in LOVE with this rustic mantle from TomKat Studio. Believe it or not, but a lot of this mantle is DIY! Byron would love this - I think it's simple enough for him (but fancy enough for me!)

From Thrifty Decor Chick - this mantle is made up of old candleholders from Goodwill that were wrapped in wrapping paper. Add some votives, greenery and pine cones and this mantle looks amazing - one of my favorites!

Tip - Don't forget the hearth! Here's a great idea from Chic on a Shoestring Decorating.

Tip - From Maison de Pax, use a curtain rod to hang your stockings.

Happy Decorating!
