Rustic Christmas Mantel

Well, I finally dug myself out of the mess from the last post, and thought I would show you our mantel.

It’s probably one of my favorite parts of decorating for the holidays. 

I usually keep it rustic, since we live in the country, and…well…I like to stick with overall theme.  Hey, if I go with the rustic look, nothing has to be perfect. Which is just the way I like it.


This year I decided to go with stars.  I didn’t have to buy one thing….my husband was so proud of me.

A couple of years ago, I bought these metal reindeer and snowflake stocking holders at an after-Christmas sale.  They were a steal and  I still love ’em.  Peeking out from the greenery, is that “Believe” sign I somehow managed to make. 

I found the old window frame out in the barn.  And the stars, were in my storage closet.

Ta-da!  My mantel…rustic…not perfect…and all from items I had on hand.
