Ho ho ho! It’s definitely beginning to feel like Christmas now. We’ve been busy ever since Friday trying to get all of the Christmas decorations up, but I’ve learned when you have a toddler, you have to do it in increments. :)
But I did manage to get the mantel complete so that’s what I’ll be showing you today!
In case you are wondering, that is the Pottery Barn decorative ledge that I use as a mantel. I got it at PB’s outlet store for $150, and it was the best $150 I’ve ever spent. :) It’s so fun having a mantel to decorate!
I already had the shutters from a thrifting trip, and everything else came from Hobby Lobby or Homegoods. I did make the stockings and you can read about that here if you’d like. I put two strands of the battery operated lights around the garland for a little more bling, since we don’t have an outlet up high on the wall.
A few closeups…
Some Christmas trees made out of feathers, because everyone needs feathers on a mantel right?
And those mercury glass vases in the above picture were from Homegoods. I love them. And they can be used all year round which is even better.
Front and center…
And just a few more for fun, because I like fun.
So that’s the mantel for this year. What kind of style is it? I have no idea. I just use what I like. :) I’m usually a pretty traditional type of gal with a little fun thrown in. There, that’s my style! :)
Layla is having a mantel party on Tuesday, so be sure and get them ready so you can link up yours. There will be plenty of inspiration and I can’t wait!
