A Joyful Christmas Mantel

Thanks for Sharing!

I love decorating for Christmas!  I’m one of those people who starts playing Christmas music in September… so I’m thrilled when I get to share Christmas goodies with you and today I’ve got this year’s Christmas mantel!  I’ve joined up with some awesome blogger in a fun 3 day Christmas Mantel event… so make sure to check out everyone listed at the end of the post for some great ideas.  This year’s Christmas Mantel is all about Joy!

I love the centerpiece on this year’s Christmas mantel.  I used a big, beautiful evergreen wreath and put a chunky J and Y on either side.

The wreath is wrapped in a burlap ribbon and a beautiful sheer gold ribbon.

I brushed some gold leaf onto the tips on some pinecones the kiddos had collected.

I love the beautiful richness it adds.

The ends of the mantel have burlap wrapped mini Christmas trees finished up with a plaid ribbon.

I decided to add some pomegranates to the mantel too.  Our pomegranate tree is overflowing this year.

I love their vibrant red!

  2. I love it Maryann!!! The ‘Joy’ letters are genius and it’s all just fantastic. So fun to be apart of this tour with you and team up with other crazy early-Christmas decorators! lol

  3. Love the wreath!! I am going to steal your idea but I think I will use red ribbon and letters. I am a traditional Christmas girl with lots of red!!!
