Every year I go back and forth between wanting fully colorful Christmas decorations and wanting to keep things neutral and simple. Usually, colorful decor wins out, but this year I opted to stick with whites, greens, and natural wood tones for most of our decor. I really love the calm and simple look of this year’s rustic and neutral Christmas mantel.
I repurposed a few pieces from my fall mantel for these Christmas decorations. I reused the white ceramic houses and lighted twine strand from the Target Dollar Spot, along with the wooden bead garland I made a few years back. I added a ceramic house ornament from the Target dollar spot to a plain wreath above the houses and trees.
I have been collecting trees for our Christmas decorations over the past several years. The wooden trees are from Target, while the bottle brush trees are from Consumer Crafts. Having them in a variety of heights and widths keeps things from looking too flat.
I added a few more battery-powered LED candles to my rustic wood crate. They add the glow of fire to the hearth since we don’t use our actual fireplace.
I ordered some inexpensive burlap stockings from Amazon and embellished them with burlap snowflake ornaments from Dollar Tree. I have really been enjoying the calm neutral color palette this year. What color scheme do you use for your Christmas decorations?
