Christmas Mantle, compliments of Target & IKEA

The mantle is getting Christmas-a-fied!


This year I decided to go simple.


A few Target Dollar Spot Ornaments


I bought this soft beautiful pine garland (fake) from IKEA for only $7! I’ve been meaning to head back over and get a few more for other areas in the house. I hope they aren’t sold out before I get back there.


I love these Stockings!


They are so simple, yet so vibrant. I bought them on Clearance just before Christmas last year from Old Navy for only 99ยข each!


I have some fancy custom-made velvet stockings with a matching tree skirt and pillows I made years ago. I’m hanging them in my newly remodeled piano room. I’ll show you them soon.

I have my terra cotta Christmas Trees on either end of the mantle. I really love how they turned out. I debated making them identical, but I’m glad I went for variety.


A few more ornaments here and there…



I’ll probably make a wreath to hang on the mirror, but other than that I don’t plan on doing anything else this year to the mantle.

I’m trying to keep it simple. I know it seems like I’ve been here forever, but I only moved into my new home 4 months ago.


I love Christmas!

Merry Christmas, y’all!
