Welcome to Favorite Things Friday #6……..Simple Christmas Mantel Ideas

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Below you will find a few mantels to inspire a simple Christmas.

Use a Wintry-Theme for Tree Decorating


A big trend these days is to decorate for Christmas using colors in the room. The simplicity is magical here with a snowflake theme.  The snowflake mantel art could easily be created with a thrift store frame and paper cut snowflakes.


Wrap a Christmas Tree in Wide Ribbon


Do you have a collection…maybe white pitchers, mortar & pestles, urns? Incorporate that into your mantel for a simple look with fresh or faux greens.


A Red and White Christmas

Kim from Sand and Sisal has a wonderful simple mantel using traditional reds. Visit Kim to see more of how she created this look!


Mercury glass brings sparkle to any space, so if she loves glamour and romance, a set of Mercury Glass Candlesticks would be a winning gift under the tree.


Very simple using mercury glass candlesticks and lanterns. I love the use of simple plaid ribbons for color and pattern.
