home: rustic and traditional holiday mantel

Thursday, December 12, 2013

After a long absence from this little blog, I'm back with holiday cheer!! Apologies for not sharing and keeping up with my crafty dedication to you. But I return with holiday inspiration that is a little bit rustic, a little bit traditional. Starting with our mantelscape:

I gathered all of these pinecones 2 years ago on a trip to Lake Tahoe hoping to create the most amazing something. They have sat in a bag and this year, they make an appearance on the mantel. If I had more time, I would paint the tips gold and add a little fleck of glitter. The holiday is still young.

I made these stockings two years ago - so simple! And this little rustic add-on was the solution to my leftover Spring sign stick and lonely ornaments. Cost me nothing and cleaned out the closet!

The Christmas tree is my favorite part of the holidays with the pine smell, sparkle and history of ornaments collected from our trips and accomplishments!

This vignette has become one of my favorite spots to decorate. For the holiday, I picked up sheets of the Watercolor Mistletoe wrapping paper at Paper Source and replaced my Fall print (sorry, you never saw that) with this colorful print.

The wreath was a $2.99 purchase at Michael's and the ornaments were gifts from years past. I'm not even sure they're tightly secured to that wreath!

I hope this gives you a little inspiration to get out there and add some DIY cheer to your home! What projects have you been taking on this season?
