My fireplace mantel sits in the heart of our house and I love decorating it for the holidays. I wanted to keep our Christmas mantel decorations bold and simple because our mantel is quite small. The thing I like best about decorating my mantel is that it can be completed in less than an hour.
Gotta love that.
Otherwise…who has time?
The Christmas bulb garland I made in about 15 minutes by stringing a bunch of bulbs I bought last year on super sale onto ribbon. #DYIdone
Although the fireplace mantel is tiny, the tall mirror and bigger bolder decorations give it visual strength and it truly becomes the focal point of the room.
If you have subscribed to my blog via email you will get the fake glittered Joy and Ho Ho Ho graphics for free as well as a smaller version of the deer on a Christmas card. Otherwise, you can buy them through my Etsy store. Fake glitter is the way to go. Otherwise you’ll still be cleaning it up when Christmas 2015 rolls around.
If you’ve subscribed to my blog newsletter you will be getting a version of this in a card for free. It is also available on Etsy.
Now all I need is a new set of lights to put around my window and the Christmas decoration are done!
What about you? What is your favourite spot to decorate for the holidays in your house?
