Running out of time to share the rest of my Christmas décor with you! I know some of you have been waiting and wanting to see my Christmas mantel… so here it is!
I had planned to do something totally different but ran out of time to make that happen. But I really do like how it came out anyways.
I love this view of part of the mantel and part of the tree!
In fact this same angle/view of last years Christmas décor has been my phone background and front screen this Christmas.
Just to share how I changed things up this was last year’s décor and mantel…
And this was my Christmas decor the year before that…
But back to this year’s red JOY mantel.
I didn’t really buy or make anything new for this mantel. The red berry trees were yard sale finds from this past summer and the pallet piece is actually a fireplace screen that has a very dated picture on the front side that I found at Value Village this summer.
I did spray paint my JOY letters that I just used as plain paper mache last year. And then just reused and pulled things from all over the house. Lots of yard sale/thrift store finds – all the trees except the white one, the large urn, the bench, the sleigh, the barn door/pallet backdrop, the bench, and even the greenery all are thrifty finds
This stool has become a permanent fixture here, I just love the coziness that it brings and be able to decorate it with a throw and pillows each season. Maybe this year I will find a chair and ottoman for the corner by the windows and retire my stool to somewhere else.
I love using this old sleigh that I picked up for $5 a few years ago in my winter décor. Now if I could just find some ice skates at a thrift store or yard sale… but think that may be pretty hard here in GA!
I was excited when I found this pair of red berry trees at a yard sale with the tags still on them this past summer – I think I paid $4 for both of them.
Kept it somewhat simple this year with lots of red, white, and green and natural elements.
And some coziness on the hearth.
I have ran out of time to share everything else with you this year so if any of you still want to see it, I think I will post a Christmas recap/Christmas at our house tour the day after Christmas instead of a holiday tour before. You can always get some ideas for next year! I start thinking and planning about anything new I would like to do/buy now so that I can hopefully pick it up on Christmas clearance. I know this year I would like to find 1 or 2 small trees – one tabletop and one 3-4 foot tree. Should be CHEAP after Christmas
I will be back tomorrow for a quick post, but for now more wrapping is calling! Are you done wrapping yet??
