DIY Southern Christmas Mantel

Hello to all you wonderful "Blissful And Domestic readers! I am so excited to be here with y'all today sharing my Southern Christmas Mantel. This fall, I brought lots of natural elements in from the outside to decorate and I really wanted to continue that theme through the Christmas season too.

Lately, I've been crushing on antlers like crazy, and my husband being the sweetheart that he is, has been collecting them and surprising me with new ones. Then while on Pinterest, it gets me every time, I saw a photo of a deer mounted over the fireplace, and I knew that we really needed one of those! Sweet hubby to the rescue, he found one of those too! Boy, I was smiling BIG time!

Now because I'm not a totally rustic kind of girl, I had to decorate him up a little, so I made him a pom pom garland to warm him up a bit, saw that on Pinterest too-ha! Check out my pom pom tutorial here and you can make your own, easy-peasy. Threw in a handmade book page tree , a lantern, a pine cone garland, another pom pom garland, hand-made burlap stockings from last year and LOTS of fresh greenery and, ta-da, all done.

Thank y'all so much today for joining me here at Danielle's place. It's always so much fun to come and hang out with y'all for a while. Happy December Everyone and Merry Christmas from The Little Farm Diary!
