Rustic Christmas Mantel

Sharing is caring!

This post is sponsored by Bindle & Brass Trading Company, but all opinions are my own.  I’m so excited to be sharing with you my Rustic Christmas Mantel.  I love how this year’s Christmas mantel came together.  Lots of cinnamon scented pinecones and snowy details turns this Christmas mantel into a rustic, winter wonderland.

Rustic Christmas Mantel

The kind folks at Bindle and Brass Trading Company sent me a variety of their products to decorate with.  The top of my mantel is filled with their Classic Cinnamon Pinecones.  The scent is amazing as you come through the front door.

I created a couple snowy pinecones using the same method I did with my Snowy Pine Cone Cluster.  I just love the sparkle that you get with that twinkly white on the pinecones.

Some small Christmas trees with their bases wrapped in burlap and a cute Christmas ribbon flank either side of the mantel.

In the center I have our furry, white stockings all hung in a row.

Rustic Snowy Branches

I think my favorite part of my Christmas mantel area is the Rustic Snowy Branches!  I used Bindle & Brass’ brooms to create these.  They sent me the most amazing scented brooms: Apple Splendor Broom, Pumpkin Spice Broom, and Classic Cinnamon Broom.  I used one of each to create the snowy branches.

Here’s what I used to create the snowy branches:

I used a sponge paint brush to gently brush white glue onto the brooms.  I did one broom at a time.  Once the glue was applied I sprinkled the glued area with epsom salt, until the glue area was coated.

Repeat on each broom until you get the desired look you’re after.

On the Maxi brooms, I added some faux berries, which I adhered with a hot glue gun.

The results were beautiful.  It gave a frosted, winter look to the amazing, scented brooms.

I placed the snowy brooms into a galvanized bucket to complete that rustic look. I just love how the Bindle & Brass products added that great, rustic look I wanted.

A big thanks again to Bindle & Brass for their help in creating this year’s mantel.
