Christmas Mantel

In our home, we are lucky enough to have 2 mantels to decorate. One of them is stacked stone. This is the reason why we fell in love with our house!

I just love a simple mantel for Christmas.
My mom found these blocks for me and they're interchangeable. They have letters on both sides that spell out various things like, Noel and Jolly. When I get bored I move them around! Believe is my favorite because it really helps capture the magic of the season!
I was fortunate to not have to make these, but if you're looking how to, Judy from DIY by Design shared the directions for how she made similar ones for my 12 Crafty Days of Christmas Party.
The wreathes are just layered with a 24 in. greenery from Hobby Lobby and a ornament wreath from Pier 1. I love layering wreathes because it gives a smaller one more of a punch!
This little guy is my new obsession. He's my new favorite!

Don't forget about the Christmas Craft linky party next week!

I love the wreath above the mantle- so pretty! I'm guessing the snowman is made from holiday charger plates??

Yes, I agree with Elizabeth - chargers!! What a great idea! So clever.

Gee whiz some of us have no mantel and you get 2? How come? lol
We have kind of a mantel, it's a shutter shelf hubs made me.
Your mantels are so pretty with just the little I saw of the one with candle sticks you made. The rock fireplace is gorgeous. The candle sticks are awesome girl, love, love them. Lot better than having to buy them, paying those awful prices. Wish I could find some of those porch spindles. The red with little candle platforms are perfect at different heights. Love a diy'er. Love your double wreath also. Happy Week
