Layered Holiday Mantle Garland

Ready or Not....the holidays are upon us!!!  If you haven't started decking the halls with Christmas decor in your home, then this is the weekend to do it!!!  There is not a lot of time between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year, so why not get a head start on your decorating so you have more time to enjoy it!!! 

With less than 10 items, you can create a gorgeous, layered Holiday Mantle!!

Basic Artificial Garland can be bought anywhere

White Christmas Lights bought anywhere
(choose the green wired lights to hide in the green garland)

This is a mantle I helped a client of mine decorate for the holidays.  We started with just the plain, basic green garland and layered in all of these pretty details!!  They recently renovated the design of their fireplace and mounted their television above the fireplace.  So, decorating her mantle for the holidays was a new challenge for her this year!  Especially on how to hang their stockings with only limited space below the television.

I love these deer heads!!  My client actually found these and wanted to incorporate them into the mantle decorations.  We propped them up on little clear vases so you can see them above the garland.  And you would never know they are bookends!!

These flat stockings holders are awesome if you are looking for something to just tuck under your mantle garland without all the decoration.  Sometimes something simple is much better.  I love these from Pottery Barn because they are also engraveable! If you don't want to splurge on these from PB, I have also seen these at Target in a 2 pack.  

And that my friends, is how easy decorating a mantle for the holidays can be!! 

It's not too late to hire me to help you with your Christmas decorating!!  Are you stumped on where to start?  Need to buy a few extra new pieces to add into what you already have?  Entertaining lots of friends & family this holiday and want to impress them with your Christmas decorating??
