Christmas Mantel

Rustic woodland decor was my choice this year for the Christmas mantel.  I found these adorable reindeer at Big Lots, and feel in love with them!

Aren't they pretty!!!

These shutters that I've used for a long time, got a coat of red paint.  The wreaths hanging on them were consignment finds. I brought out the birch candles from last year. The burlap wreath, I made to use in my fall decor.  I added a string of wooden beads through it for a pop of red.  The sign is one I did the other day from a scrap of baseboard.  I painted it red, free handed "Merry", stenciled "Christmas", then sanded it well for an aged look.

(Candle stands, consignment)

 I moved the sign to the book case, so here is the mantel without it.

There you have it, my bargain mantel decor.  Proving every day, it doesn't cost a fortune to decorate, just use your imagination, and make it work!
