My Christmas decorating almost always starts with my mantel. And this year was no exception. But this is the second I’ve done so far this year! I’m pretty sure it will be the last. Have your ever had an idea in your mind how you want something to look, but after executing your vision… it should have just stayed an idea in your mind? That was the first Christmas mantel. While I was rooting around in the basement I found this long forgotten old, chippy window and that sparked a new mantel idea. The new mantel has a definite Farmhouse feel. And it is so light and bright!
The focal point of this year’s mantel is an old, chippy window that is propped up against the wall. I hung a pine wreath from a burlap ribbon on the window. This year my mantel has lots of organic and no traditional Christmas colors. Just colors of nature!
Isn’t this a fun burlap polka dot bow? If you like this bow HERE is an easy tutorial, so you can make one too!
Pinecones stand in a little straight line on the mantel ledge!!! Some are candles… can you tell the difference?
Just like the wreath, this tall tree is also a pine! I’m loving the long needles and wispy look of pine this year!
My Christmas mantel sets the tone for the rest of my Christmas decor this year! Stay tuned for more Christmas decor!
