Winter Mantel Decor

I have been so removed from blogging that I never even shared our Christmas mantel. Well I intend to get back into it and I'll start by sharing how I decorated our mantel for the winter months.

I decided to go with a crisp red & gold theme instead of the traditional whites etc. Most of the items I used were things I already had and a few are new from a recent Hobby Lobby shopping trip.

I found this gold frame and the spiked piece on sale. I then put them together by removing the glass from the frame and hot gluing the spiked piece on a sheet of white paper, cut to fit the frame. I love the dimensional look it created.

The red vase on the black stand I have had for years as well as the gold metal piece behind the frame.

This red decorative plate was a gift from Pier 1 years ago and I had purchased the gold decor piece from Hobby Lobby a long time ago too.

The wooden bowl is my favorite find. Found on clearance, it adds a natural element to the vignette.

The inside of the bowl has a scraped finish.  I can see using this in other vignettes and tablescapes throughout the year.

I will be changing it out soon as we get closer to Valentines Day but, we are enjoying how warm, bright and cheery the mantel looks now, during the cold and gray still to come this winter.

  6. Very pretty mantel and it has a very warm feel to it. Love the round clock the best. The red adds brightness to it and brings everything together in such a pretty way. Yes, I haven't even shared my C'mas mantel or hardly any d├ęcor, I've been without any time and not home.
    Hugs,

  9. Don't have any chargers so I use placemats, but your chargers are so cute I'm going to have to change that. IKEA is the place we head when my daughter and I get together. Such a fun place to go and easy on the purse.
