Woodland Holiday Mantel

holiday Christmas mantel decor

I love to decorate, especially when the holidays are upon us. I try to add something new to my collection each year to ensure a fresh and exciting look.
This year I purchased a few red cardinal ornaments and lots of fake snow to create a red, white and green winter mantel. I also recycled the bottom branches off my Christmas tree, which added a natural woodland feel. I really love how my mantel turned out this year! The red birds tie into my existing decor and the fake snow sparkles when the fireplace is burning. I enjoy bringing outdoor elements inside and my snowy woodland mantel ensures that we will enjoy a white Christmas no matter what occurs outside.

Enjoy!

My grandmother made the poinsettia stockings along with a tree skirt for my husband and me as a wedding gift.  I always thought that it was such a great homemade gift idea as most newlyweds don’t have matching holiday decor.  We have used those stockings for the past 13 years and they are a treasure because my grandmother handmade them for us.  My mom made the green plaid stockings for my two boys and I love the contrast of the green plaid and the floral poinsettia print.

I have mixed white glitter branches with the greenery from my Christmas tree to give it a whimsical outdoor feel.  This has always reminded me a bit of a Cuckoo clock, and it fits in perfectly with all the red cardinals and white snow.

    • Thank you all for your support and kind words. I had fun with this one.
      I just had a visit to the Hobby Lobby- it may be my new favorite store.
      More to come on my amazing finds and crafts…
