The Simple Secret to decorating a small mantle!
With Christmas right around the corner I thought it would be a great time to show you some of the new home decor items available at Michaels. I love decorating with bright whimsical colors and as you can see I went with just that this year! I will show you how to decorate a tiny mantle, let’s go!
Santa’s MAKEshop is now open at Michaels! From holiday décor to trimmings for your tree, you can find everything you need to make your holiday magical!
If you are wondering this is the first year I opted out of doing the Dream Tree Challenge for Michaels and I can’t lie it feels a little strange. Instead I wanted to showcase items that you can use in your personal space that still give off the magic of Christmas. Go all out this holiday season with a Winter Wonderland Tree, a Southern Belle Tree or a Pastel Tree.
If you are interested in purchasing all of the items I used in my post online just click here and you can shop away in the comfort of your home!
This year I was really impressed with Michaels! The vintage items in the Jingle Jolly section blew me out of the water. The vintage home and car with the presents melted my heart. Typically I try to purge Christmas items however I will be keeping these for the long haul.
Still not sure what theme you want to do this season, here are a few Christmas ornament ideas that might inspire you.
Michaels has quite a few themes this season for you to choose from. They have Alpine Décor,Jingle Jolly Way, Frosted Forest, Costal Décor (limited stores and online) and Boho Décor (limited stores and online).
How cute are these miniature lights on the front of the vintage house. These bring me back instantly to my childhood for some odd reason.
Very seldom I want to keep up garlands all year round but I can promise you that these felt ones will stay up all year.
If buying garlands is out of your price point here is an easy way to make your own using cotton balls!
Nothing feels more like Christmas than Vintage ornaments however check out these Ice Cream Cone Ornaments that I created a few years back. You can’t go wrong with beautiful sequined ornaments either. Can you believe I still have these. See I don’t purge as well as I would like to think, haha!
I have a good quantity of real glass vintage ornaments from my Pop Stew that I cherish every holiday season. It never fails they always make it into my decor each year. The “faux” vintage ornaments are not made of glass but in person they look like they are. The plastic ones are great since I don’t have to worry about them breaking!
Something that would look great on your mini mantle besides this cute car is DIY bottle brush trees and I have the perfect tutorial on how to dye them any color you want. Can’t you just see this car in your head rolling down the streets in New York city?
Sadness overcomes me knowing that I will be taking all this down for another Christmas post. Don’t fret I will merge it all together. There is no way I will opt out of these decorations this season!
Every season I put up banners and I fell in love with this MERRY one.
Impressed is what I am with the quality of them which means I can re-use them each year.
Stay tuned this week I will be showing you how I made my faux stacked wood!
I hope you enjoyed this project as much as I did! See you in the next post, until then hugs from my computer to yours!
