Christmas Mantel Idea

It’s November, time to start thinking about that Christmas mantel! I’ve joined a talented group of awesome decorators to share beautiful ideas to get your wheels turning! So untangle the lights, dig out the tinsel and let’s get started!

Plaid Christmas Mantel

All the Christmas decor for the mantel was inspired by the banner that I purchased at Target from the $1 section, I wish I could say that it was $1, it was actually $3.

One thing lead to another and the plaid theme was born!

I’m not the only one sharing a mantel idea,  thanks to Sonya –  At Home With The Barkers and Melissa – Daisy Mae Belle for organizing a talented group of bloggers mantel tour!

Christmas Mantel Antique Sled

I’m using my antique wooden sleigh, as soon as I purchase gifts and put up the tree it will be holding presents.

Christmas Mantel Plaids

I wish I could find some real birch logs, but these candle holders from Hobby Lobby were a great stand in. They look like they’re going to burn the stocking, but they are really in front of it.

We’re going to add gas logs soon but for now I placed white candles on a ceramic tray to create a little glow.
