Aqua and Red Christmas Mantel

Aqua and Red Christmas Mantel

Every few years (sometimes every year) I feel the need to change up my holiday decor. My style evolves. Sometimes the changes are small; old things go out and new things come in. However I usually hesitate to do a complete Christmas decor overhaul. The thought of spending that much money on decor that will only be up about a month is hard. I went ahead and took the plunge this year and I’ve decked the halls in Aqua & Red.

Today I’m sharing my new Aqua and Red Christmas Mantel……..

You may spot my Window Ornament Hanger up there! I created that beauty 4 years ago and I still love it. With the simple change up of the ornaments it’s transformed and I love it even more now!

Okay I must admit something. I am slightly addicted to Christmas stockings. This addiction came as a surprise to me but now that I’m the owner of 3 different sets of stockings, I’d say I have a problem. I wasn’t loving the ones I currently had anymore and I happen to be strolling down the stocking aisle in Hobby Lobby and what should I find? Aqua and red stockings? They practically leapt into the basket. My kids were pretty concerned that Santa would not know who’s stocking was who’s…..so I added some sparkly initials to top them off!

Do you spot my Now Dasher, Now Dancer Subway Art down there? I needed some more aqua Christmas decor to finish up my home and aqua isn’t really the easiest holiday decor to find. So I just whipped up some of my own. See that Deer Head Sign too? Tutorial to come!!!

I am so happy with the way my Aqua and Red Christmas Mantel came together. I didn’t want it to be too fussy, yet it looks complete. It also fits in perfectly with my living room!

  2. I love the Red and Turquoise. Do you mind if I ask you where you purchased the red, silver and turquoise cone trees?
