It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I’m honored to be joining some other bloggers today for a Deck the Halls Blog Hop. You can visit the other talented bloggers at the end of this post. Grab a cup of your favorite hot beverage and cozy up while I show you how I created a Simple Farmhouse Christmas Mantel. You can easily pull this together!
Last year, my decor was all about buffalo check, but this year, I wanted something different. Something less busy. Also, I wanted this to be budget friendly, so that means using what I had on hand. Links are provided for your convenience – While it may help me grab a cup of coffee, no cost charges back to you. Read my full disclosure here.
Simple Farmhouse Christmas Mantel
I hung a wooden snowflake on my mirror. Since I am reusing old decor, I mixed up garland and greenery I had on hand to create a layered look.
By mixing different faux evergreen with sprigs of eucalyptus, it made a gorgeous variegated look.
I added two mini burlap wrapped Christmas Trees to frame in the mirror.
I found this set of four burlap Christmas Stockings from Amazon for less than $20!
A wooden lantern on one side of the fireplace adds warmth.
One new addition to our fireplace is this gorgeous wrought iron firewood stand.
I love how the wood looks against my tobacco basket used as a fireplace screen.
I love the simplicity of this look, but I added one more easy detail.
Finally, a strand of battery operated lights adds coziness to make this simple farmhouse Christmas mantel a perfect, understated centerpiece.
I added the same type of strand to my vintage bottles behind my sofa.
My blue bottles compliment the blue snowflake on my mirror.
Now I have a simple and cozy spot to sit by the fire in my deconstructed armchair.
Since we are all stocked up on firewood, and have the pup to sit with us in front of the roaring fire, the cold weather is welcome anytime!
