A Joyful Christmas Mantel
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!
I love our JOYful mantel this year!
Now I’ve got a bunch of other amazing Christmas mantels for you to check out…

We just moved into our new home this summer which has a fireplace. I’m so excited to decorated the mantel this year! This would be a good idea.
Thanks for posting!
