Welcome to our FINAL Mantel Monday before Christmas. Wow! I can't believe we're less than a week away from my favorite holiday! This Monday I haven't really created a new mantel, I've just kind of combined elements from my other mantels. And, yes, this is the mantel you saw on Saturday when I gave the Christmas Tree Tour. The big news is that I finally got a stocking for my lil' punkin. It was only $6 so I won't feel guilty when I finally decide what I want our family stockings to be. So many choices, how will I ever come to a decision?
Oh, life really is complicated.
Instead of going on and on about a mantel that isn't all that new, I've decided to highlight a handful of mantels from creative souls who linked up to our party on the 10th! So many amazing Christmas projects were shown!
If I featured your mantel on this fine Mantel Monday, go ahead and grab a button. If you're into that sort of thing, of course.
(and, clearly I am)
I love this mantel from Cherished Bliss! And, I totally adore the yarn ball wreath. I may have to make a version of that for my winter wreath. It would definitely transition well into January, don't you think?
This mantel from It's Overflowing is delightful, just like Aimee! Her hubby used old fence posts to make that cool backdrop. And, I love how the gloss white reindeer constant against the greenery and wood accents. So charming!
The combo of greenery, gold and cream from Sarah at Life on Walnut Street is so pretty. I love her paper Christmas trees, too! Head over and pin those for next year! Sarah gives a very thorough description of her process. And, I'm totally confident you could pull it off.
This mantel is my mom's mantel from Permanent Posies. I love the bronze trays with all of her festive accents. Plus, my mom has a great collection of vintagey-sparkley pieces. Her mantel feels like Christmas to me. Don't you love how the reindeer are flying across the mirror?? Perfect touch, mom! :)
This last featured mantel from Space 46 isn't really a mantel, but I wanted to show you how easy it is to spruce up any surface with pieces you'd often find on mantels. Don't you love her combo of whites, creams and natural elements? I bet the cinnamon sticks smell divine. Plus, that snowflake garland is beautiful. She even links you to a tutorial. Another great pin for next year's projects!
And, in case you need a recap of my Christmas mantels this year, here they are:
If your mantel isn't spruced for Christmas yet, you now have plenty of inspiration!!
