How to Decorate a Winter Mantel

Create a beautiful winter mantel with Christmas leftovers!

Putting away the Christmas decorations can be bitter sweet. 

There are so many pieces I just love so I'm keeping them out this year and creating an icy blue winter mantel.

I changed out my Christmas Mantel by removing the Santa, the reindeer, and the lights.

In their places I added my icy blue Mason Jar collection. 

These colors are perfect for the cold winter months.

I added a battery powered tea light under the vintage insulators for a little sparkle.

 I matched the pillows on the kitty approved couch too!

Leaving up those snowy trees just works for the winter and I barely had to move them.

I added a giant glittered snowflake to my DIY mantel ladder which I leave on my mantel all year long.

I even get to keep up my very favorite DIY funnel tree for another month or two.
