With Thanksgiving behind us, we’re slowly beginning to get up the holiday decorations and get in the spirit for the holiday. Truth be told, I’ve been stocked up on beautiful, new holiday decorations since October. Shopping at Big Lots, I couldn’t resist when the gorgeous decor hit the shelves – I scooped up everything I loved.
Now that I am able to bring everything out, I’m excited to get our mantel decorated.
Our family room is a central place in our home – where everyone gathers. So, having the mantel decorated in the spirit of the holiday is a must! As you know by now, Big Lots is, quite simply, my go to place for just about anything and everything. Time and time again, Big Lots has proven their promise to deliver on their Pillar of Value – Quality, Brands, Fashion and Value! They offer quality brands that last, meet value and are on budget. The brands are names you know at the best price – and they’re trendy, in fashion, all at the best value. For me, that’s everything I’m looking for! Thanks to Big Lots’ promise of value and quality, I have amazing holiday decor this year and it looks like I spent a small fortune!
I was able to pick up faux toparies, which are perfect on a mantel, along with this fun, paper-print style tree and reindeer.
I also was able to grab two wooden holiday signs as well as a red lantern with LED candle. Putting it all together on the mantel was easy since all the items in the holiday decor collection paired so well together.
Tip: Have a focal point in the center and balance out the sides with equal height.
I balanced out the items with tall candelabras I had on hand. Until I get the stockings up, I hung a simple rag tie bunting.
Get the look: A rag bunting is SO simple to make! If you want the look, use any fabric or old rags of your choice (think pieces of felt, burlap, old dishtowels, cloth napkins, old clothing etc.) Cut into one inch thick strips, about 6 inches long – and tie in a knot around a piece of twine or decorative rope. You can get fancy like the one above by using decorative edge scissors. EASY!
Easy, festive and beautiful pieces that will be a part of my holiday decor collection for years to come.
I hope my easy mantel decor inspires you this holiday season – and you don’t miss the fabulous finds at Big Lots.
