Much like with my fall mantle, I went with pieces that added a little height to the equation. A sweet rocking horse, a vintage looking Santa sign an an apothecary jar filled with pinecones and ornaments go perfectly with the classic Christmas vibe my decorations have this year. Since my decor has a decidedly rustic vibe these days, traditional, homey decorations just work best. And what's more homey than Christmas garland and pine cones?! And speaking of the pine cones, you could certainly forgo them and fill the jar with ornaments in your color theme of choice. Easy peasy!
So, as you focus on your own holiday mantle decor this year, I hope my ideas help on the inspiration front. And for even more festive holiday fun, check out these easy holiday centerpiece ideas!
