This Christmas I have embraced “less is more”. Of course there are some colorful Christmas decor traditions that we will always have. But for my mantel, I wanted something clean and fresh. I wanted a modern Christmas mantel. Target helped me attain that look. Here are some tips for a fresh Christmas mantel. (Check out my fall mantel here.)
+Use real garland as opposed to fake. It looks so much better.
+Mix old with new. I used a hand form and piece of art that I’ve had for awhile and paired them with new products from Target.
+Layer layer layer. Place larger, taller items in the back and layer smaller items in front.
+Arrange things in odd numbers. Instead of placing 2 items together, use 3 or 5 to create a perfectly layered look.
+You don’t need lights in the garland for it to be festive. Instead, place them at the base of the fireplace for a little twinkle.
