Handsome Transitional Woodland Mantel DIY

Create a transitional Christmas mantel that you can style before Thanksgiving and tweak so it looks festive for Christmas.

I chose two 6-ft long Norfolk pine garlands because they lay relatively flat on the mantel and have almost a waterfall effect.

Tip 1

This year’s mantel is lit up with fairy lights. I used two strings of battery-operated lights with built-in timers.

Tip 2

Because I wanted a woodland-inspired mantel, I added pinecones.

Tip 3

I collect all kinds of ornaments. One of my favorites are these sweet glass acorn ornaments. So, I had to add them to the transitional garland.

Tip 4

I tucked in a trio of pheasant feathers into the garland at the end of the mantel.

Tip 5

There is just enough room at the end of the mantel to add a trio of mix-and-match brass and ORB candlesticks with burnt orange candles.

Tip 6

This Thanksgiving-inspired mantel can easily be transformed into a Christmas mantel.
