Winterizing your Mantel
I usually leave my Christmas decorations up until New Years, except this year, I decided to go ahead and take them down early one room at a time. Starting with the family room only leaving a few pieces to create my winter fireplace mantel decorations.
Decorating the Mantel
Decorating the mantel which is in the center of the room allows me to create a pleasing symmetry, allowing a place to decorate for the season. While decorating the mantel I usually end up rotating and moving items to make the best use of the mantel size and shape.
Change Things Around
Finding pieces and placement can be quite challenging since the mantel is very narrow, but allowing the baskets to hang over the edge a bit adds dimension to the winter fireplace mantel arrangement. I selected pieces that can be used throughout the year and can be easily be transitioned into the next season.
The rustic holders SINGLE LAB STAND TEST TUBE VASES bring a sense of a woodsy tree setting and by filling the vases with faux snow filler allows a pure simple cool crisp look of fresh snow. Chicken wire baskets placed on their sides, overflowing with pinecones reminds me of the family walks we use to take in the mountains, where we would collect as many pinecones we could handle to add to our collection. For more ideas on using pinecones for a winter setting you can see here how I decorated our patio for winter.
To finish off the winter fireplace mantel decorations some more faux snow was placed along the mantel with picks of snow balls, pinecones and greenery.
Tip: Using batting and sprinkling it with fine glitter is the perfect way to mimic snow.
What I like most about this setting is it can be easily changed out for the next holiday using other fillers and floral
Valentines…add heart confetti to the vase and a single stemmed rose.
