Here’s another look at the mantle decorating play date Nads and I had last year.
We had some fun one day styling my fireplace mantle using a few finds from HomeSense mixed in with some things I already had. I always keep my eyes peeled for great looking Christmas pieces that I can use in different ways each year. Some of the “ingredients” in our mantle mashup included:
Red vases and branches that I have had kicking around for years
Pine branches cut out from our Christmas tree
Our DIY Birch Candleholders
A gorgeous large mirrored star given to me by my girlfriend Cathy, and 2 mini versions from HomeSense
A large hot pink feathered wreath and 3 mini ones we used to decorate Nadia’s winter wedding reception one year
Random glass candleholders and 3 silver lowball glasses
Silver and pink ornaments
Some decorative trees and pink deer from HomeSense
We just basically had fun creating different groupings until we liked what we saw. And we used the leftovers in other areas of the living room.
