The Cozy Farmhouse Inspired Mantel

  • Cedar Garland
  • Frosted pinecones
  • Snowball ornaments
  • Frosted branches
  • Birch logs
  • Evergreen Wreath
  • Birch wood deer head
  • Flannel Buffalo check Pillows
  • Vintage Wood Box
  • Lambs wool Rug
  • Cable Knit Stockings with fur

To achieve the cozy farmhouse look, use different textures such a cozy cable knit, soft lambs wool rug, buffalo check flannel pillows, layer cedar garland with frosted branches, pinecones and snow ornaments. Fun wooden box , basket or bucket works great to add extra texture and warmth to the hearth area. If you remove the stockings after Christmas, this could stay up for a winter mantel.

Vintage Elegance Inspired Mantel

  • Cedar garland
  • Vintage mirror 
  • Gold Candle Sticks
  • Flameless Candles in a variety of sizes
  • Resin deer
  • Gift wrapped boses

The simplicity of using a beautiful vintage mirror to reflect a warm glow from an abundance of candles. Start by added some festive garland across the mantle, use a mirror as your back drop, then add beautiful vintage or new candle holders on the edge and fill in candles across the remainder. For the base of the fireplace we added a few simply wrapped gifts and some resin deer.

Simple yet elegant and so cozy.

The Whimsical Kid-Friendly Mantel

  • Large Felt Poinsettias
  • Handcrafted wooden sign
  • Metal buffalo check bucket
  • Birch logs
  • Red and white stripped stockings

To achieve this look, be sure to include huge felt poinsettias, adorning a handmade wooden sign, with a metal red and white buffalo check bucket filled with a few birch logs and frosted pinecones scattered. The sweet red and white stockings finish the look.
