Cozy Christmas Mantel

Cozy….that is the feel we are going for during the Christmas season in our house.  I love decorating for Christmas, and the mantel is my {FAVORITE} part of our house to decorate.  In the past, we’ve done various nativities, stockings, Christmas knick knacks….but this year, I wanted something cozy, classic, and easy!

I did a few things with my new {FAVORITE} Christmas craft supply-spray snow!  I sprayed the tips of some pincecones and laid them inside the distressed crate.  Love that crate, by the way!  It’s been a part of every mantel scene I’ve done this year!  I also sprayed a tall, glass block vase with the spray snow and filled it with silver and red berries I picked up at Garden Ridge.

I cut out the word PEACE to replace the GIVE THANKS on my button embellished picture frame, and added a very small Christmas tree with some red bows.  My husband strung the garland and bows for me :).

Finally, I added the JOY Christmas blocks!  These were so super easy and fun to make-you can find out how to do so HERE.

We laid down some fluffy snow in front of the fireplace-we obviously don’t use it-and arranged our Christmas village.  This is my favorite way we’ve ever displayed our village!

Do you want to see some more great mantel ideas?  Or do you have one you’re proud to show off?  Then you’ll want to come back tomorrow, when I get to co host the 52 Mantels Christmas Link Party with 4 more awesomely creative ladies!
