3 Holiday Mantels

This year I wanted to do something different with my mantel. Last year I loaded it with garland and ornaments, and I completely loved it (see photo just below), but a fun Christmas movie quote was just calling out to my barn wood frame, so it was time to switch it up. I also want to play up the hearth with a village or nativity, so less on top will be better for that.

I still have some decorating to do on these mantel, like our stockings (which seem to have gone MIA!), but over all I'm loving these three options for our simple mantel.

First up is this gold and white decor, featuring a quote from my FAVORITE Christmas movie of all time, Home Alone. (what's your favorite?! leave in a comment below!) The texture from the trees and barnwood frame really stand out here, and I love how my DIY straw sunburst (learn how to make your own on the How Does She site) fits in so well.

Super crazy about Home Alone and love this print like I do? Download your own here. My white deer is from Target, last winter but I found a similar one this year. Both trees and the snow globe are from Hobby Lobby. My chrome antlers were a gift but I found some similar ones. Shop this look right here.

For the second mantle, I wanted to play on traditional green and red.

This quote is one of my all time favorites for Christmas. Download the print here. The Santa mugs were painted by my mom years ago for my siblings and I, and somehow I wound up with all three of them. This mantel I consider to be "collected". Everything that's up there, I've picked up over the years. The two trees are from Hobby Lobby, the snow lady was a gift last year, and the sleigh... I don't remember when or where that beauty came from. Find items similar to this theme here.

For the third option, aqua and red were begging to be used. The retro feel looks so good, and my white deer, which is one of my favorite pieces to decorate with, just git it so nice.

For all you Elf fans, download this print to remind you to play. The trees are from Hobby Lobby, as are the glass bottles. I found a few similar items, and you can browse them here.

Which color scheme is most up your alley? What Christmas movie quote would you want to see in your house?
