We went a little Target crazy. Remember Supermarket Sweep? Contestants charging through grocery store aisles and slamming cans of tuna in their cars? Or, really it was the huge hams because they were worth the most. Anyway, we were those contestants, but in Target instead of a grocery store and (gently) slamming glittery ceramic trees into our carriage instead of hams.
We thought it would be fun to show you a couple different, low cost ways to style your mantle this holiday season. You don't have to head to Pottery Barn and drop $500 to bring the season into your home. Both stylings cost a fraction of that...especially when you take advantage of upcoming Black Friday sales...
First up is a whimsical styling.
We brought in a pop of literally every color in felt pompom garlands, festive pillows and a bright ceramic tree. The color is balanced by some modern, white ceramic trees and the coolest white and gold reindeer.
If you wanted to layer more (and spend a bit more), we would recommend more of these fabulous pompom garlands strung across the mantle and even one draped around the mini tree. They're so fun.
Next up is a rustic styling.
We left out the color in this version, with the exception of green - which doesn't really feel like a color. It's nature! Even as a bottle brush tree...
Keeping the decor to wood, gray and white is so soothing and so beautiful.
So different, but equally festive.
And now, where to find all this fun stuff! Most of what we used is from Target, some is from the old holiday decor stash, and some is from around the around house (like the handled basket). We pulled together exact or similar sources for you.
