Vintage Inspired Christmas Mantel

Hi there! I’m back after taking a few days off to spend with family and friends. I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving! We ate way too much, did a bit of shopping, and dove right into the Christmas decorating. My house pretty much looked like a bomb went off for a few days. An in-between seasons bomb that tossed pumpkins and tinsel every which way. :)

Today begins the Christmas craziness here on the blog. I have so many fun things to share with you over the coming weeks! Be sure to check back in tomorrow for December’s giveaway. Gracie has put together an awesome prize package full of Christmas goodness! {It goes live at midnight tonight!}.

I’m excited to share my Christmas mantel with you today. I’m so happy with how it turned out! This is our first Christmas to have a real live mantel over our fireplace. In years prior, I used our old entertainment center as a “mantel” and hung our stockings and garland around the fireplace

The show piece of my mantel is this awesomely huge “Oh Holy Night” print. I bought the Noel set of digital files from Caravan Shoppe {only $5 for the whole set!} and had engineering prints done at Staples {the largest size was $7}. This was such an easy and inexpensive way to create a statement. This is my favorite Christmas song, and I love having a gigantic reminder of why we celebrate this season!

The arrangement on the mantel is put together with a variety of bottle brush trees and the DIY Christmas Tree Cones I made last year.

The large white bottle brush trees are from Target, and the pink one with ornaments in the middle is from Hobby Lobby. I ordered a pack of tiny white bottle brush trees from eBay. I flanked each side of the arrangement with sprigs of cedar. The greenery helps everything tie in with our red and green stockings. {Mine and Tim’s stockings are the two on the left and were Target finds several years ago. The stocking on the right is for our pup Macy and is from Garden Ridge.}.

I love that the fireplace is one of the first things you see upon entering our house. It’s such a festive corner!
