The mantle at StoneGable is the first thing I decorate each year. Some years I have decorated with soft neutral and natural colors and other years I’ve used non traditional Christmas colors, but this year I am going for a classic Christmas look! Lots of reds and greens and whites with a splash of black thrown in for a little holiday sass! And I’m scattering the whole mantle with lots of little white stars!
A big evergreen wreath is the centerpiece of this year’s mantle. The wreath hangs on an old window. I made it from an old wreath I found in the basement. If you would like to see how to repurpose an old wreath click HERE.
Flanking each side of the wreath are my chippy black shutters. I added a platter on each of the shutters and fixed the words Merry Christmas to them. What fun! I used my Cricut Explorer to cut out the letters.
Bits and pieces of greens were used to create a garland across the mantle. Berries and acorns dot the mantle as well as dimensional stars!
Little lights also run across the mantle and shine peeking through the paper stars!
Tiny stars crisscross the length of the mantle.
Large pinecone candles on pedestals give this mantle a warm candle glow!
Come back on Monday to see the decorated tree! I’m be sharing my Christmas home tour on Wednesday and Thursday…
