Create a Mantelpiece Holiday Display

Cricut & Balsam Hill Rustic SceneWe all know Santa likes to use your fireplace. But even Santa likes a fabulous entrance. The mantel above the fireplace is “the” place to go a little DIY crazy and set the perfect holiday tone. We’ve taken out a lot of the guesswork and created vignettes sure to wow Mr. Claus and your family. Don’t have a mantel above the fireplace? Create a beautiful “mantelpiece” on a shelf.

Mod Christmas Signs

We love creating modern settings for our Mod members. And this holiday season, take it up a notch with this vintage vignette. This also looks fab on any shelf, with or without that elf. Here are four great canvas signs to make.


Mantel ArtMantel Art

To complement any mantelpiece, we love adding DIY art to tell a story. And, yes, you can make this art on your own. For our vignette, we created a sweater piece and framed one of our holiday cards–because they are just that good from designers Rob & Bob (to make the card, go here). You can always add your own touches, like candles, framed family photos, and more. Don’t forget the stockings (as if!).



Go to Town

Who doesn’t love a village theme on their mantel? And who has gazillions of dollars to buy those ceramic pieces? Christmas VillageMake this village shown here.


So you don’t have a wreath to hang as a centerpiece. Hang these fabulous signs and banners. Say NoelMerry Christmas, or it’s raining Snowflakes with these creative signs. Or hang beautiful metallic garland to set the tone.
