Christmas Faux Mantel Vignette & Free Printable

This year for my Christmas decor, I decided to take a chance and go with some not so traditional colors. There are a lot of them, so brace yourself! They are Mint, Navy, Charcoal, Gold, Red, and White. Yummy, huh? I think that when I told people that these were my colors, they were a little thrown off and sometimes it had me a little worried. Once it all came together, I can honestly say I am SO glad I went with some trendy colors instead of traditional. The great part about doing these colors, is I brought in the more trendy colors with pieces that can easily be removed next year. 
 Isn’t it just so fun? Let’s look at the details a little more closely shall we?
On the bottom, I have a few of our old Christmas pictures from years past, my bronze statue of Christ, a mason jar full of ornaments, and a few painted pine cones.
Moving up a shelf, we have another old Christmas picture, my dollar store owl I painted, a jar full of pine cones and ornaments, a bead covered tree cone, and my newest printable! I am a huge fan of herringbone right now and I really wanted to bring in that pattern into my decor. Feel free to print your own, but please only use it for personal use and give credit when used online.
Lastly, we have the top shelf. This is where all of the elements seem to come together. The felt snowflake garland and felt snowflake place mat came from Pier One after Christmas last year. The red tree cones were hand me down decorations from my mom. 
The wreath was SO easy to make and I love the finished result. It is even in my new favorite metallic color, gilver! If any of you have ever watched The Rachel Zoe Project, you know exactly what color I am talking about. It is a pretty combination of gold and silver. I love it because it matches everything. I wrapped a Styrofoam wreath in burlap, then glued sprigs from a gilver floral bunch I found at JoAnn’s Fabric.
I loved being able to use my vintage blue mason jar. This is actually the perfect mint color too! I filled it up with red and charcoal colored ornaments. I made a mint ruffled tree cone with the same basic technique I used while making my No Sew Ruffle Tree Skirt, SO easy!
Painting the pine cones was a great way to bring in some natural elements into the decor and to bring in little splashes of color too. This is a great way to bring in more trendy colors that probably won’t be part of my decor next year because it is easy and inexpensive. I have been really into glitter this year too so I glittered up a gold tree cone too!
How do you think it call came together? What are the colors of your Christmas decor this year?
