This year, I decided to ditch the traditional red and green and try to create a Christmas/Wintery look with neutrals and metallics. I love glitter and glam and this mantel shelf display captures just that!
I made this DIY Wintery Pearl Wreath to hang on my mirror above the shelf. I love the elegance it brings to the display. You can read the tutorial here.
I painted a plank of board (that I cut down to size with my jigsaw) the same color as my wall color since I had the grey on hand already. The wall and board color is Glidden Pebble Grey. Then, I applied this “Joyeux Noel” vinyl decal I designed with my Silhouette studio. You can purchase the decal here if you’re interested. The silver nutcracker was from Hobby Lobby last year and the gold reindeer was a recent Hobby Lobby purchase. I love his swirly antlers!
Next, I really wanted to personalize the whole thing to our family but didn’t have a place for a family photo so I opted for our silhouettes. I will be posting a tutorial on how to make these (It’s really easy!) very soon.
For a little more personalization, I added monograms to the stockings. I used Hobby Lobby letters and glitter glass. Then, I embellished them with some gold pine cones, also from Hobby Lobby. I need to make 2 more still but we’re getting close! As long as they’re done in time for Santa to fill!
I made this “Believe” sign for above our sofa. I used Savannah’s tutorial to create this German Glitter Glass banner. I drilled holes in the top of the letters and strung them on jute.
The little Christmas corner! My boys took most of my couch pillows upstairs to have a pillow fight so my couch looks a little lonely but I do love how my Christmas decor is coming together! I think I need a cute Christmas pillow or two on the couch. Hmm… let’s just add that on to the list! haha!
