My holiday style is simple and rustic and I am loving this easy mantle I put together this year.
I found the garland for half off at Hobby Lobby and am planning on snagging more for next year at the after Christmas sale. I love the pine cones and natural feel.
There is that old fence again too! Ha Ha It is holding a wreath I found at target this season.
I used a roll of burlap from Burlap Fabric .com to make the stockings (check out all of my burlap projects here). They were super easy, and as we all know I can't sew. They were pretty much a no skills required project!
I cut the stocking shape and sewed it with thin red jute and big plastic needle. I trimmed the top with strips of jute and secured them with hot glue. I threw a little bell on each one and voila-SO EASY!
The stocking holders are from Hobby Lobby last year, I think each one was $2. I also put a family photo in a fun bright red frame (also from H.L.). Nichole from Nichole Tipton Photography took it at our Christmas photo session two years ago and it is just one of my all time favorite family shots.
So what do you think? I would love to see your rustic mantles too!
