Neutral Christmas Holiday Mantel Ideas

All my favorite things ended up on the mantel this year!

Neutral Christmas Tree Holiday Mantel.

After a stop at the Target dollar section and a quick trip to Michaels I had just what I needed for this year's Christmas mantel!

I started with the sign and a neutral theme.

The sign is mine, I made it last year and it's my very favorite!

The glittery Santa must have been busy visiting the houses last night because he is not facing in the right direction anymore!

These adorable white bisque houses have a hole in the back for a battery powered tea light. 

They came from Target this year and were $3 each. 

You sure can't beat these prices!

That cute little white truck with a tree is an ornament I found in Target's Christmas section this year. 

I love the trucks with the trees and when I found the white one I jumped on it!

The metal mold Christmas trees are from Michael's this year. 

They are made to replicate old chocolate molds. 

The carved wooden tree is also from Michael's craft store.

And last but not least the clock is from Tuesday Morning and has been the anchor for all my mantels since I got it!

I added a little greenery on each end and tiny white lights and called it a night.

Update: Rather than a tree skirt I like using a crate at the bottom of the tree. I cut off the back of the crate and slid the tree stand inside. You can also fill the crate with a blanket.

I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
