Farmhouse Style Christmas Mantel with a Touch of Elegance

I love the trendy new Farmhouse look that's going around....but.....I just have to add my own personal touch to!

I started creating my Farmhouse Christmas  mantel by hanging a pretty pom pom garland across the front of the existing lace mantel scarf.....

I decided to make a three blade vintage windmill piece the centerpiece of my Farmhouse Christmas mantel.....

I added a little bling to the windmill blades and added an architectural piece to the bottom part of the blades.....then I tucked a spray of roses in and the centerpiece is done.

A bottle brush tree and a Santa is placed next to the windmill blades........

I made a bow from pink and cream pillow and white buffalo check fabric......and vintage pink rose fabric for each end of the mantel.....

A string of white lights covered with pillow filling add a touch of snow across the mantel.....

Next to the Santa,   I propped a wreath up against the shutters  and placed some pretty trees in the center of it.

I mirrored with other side of the windmill blades with similar pieces......

Pom Pom garland.....

Fabric bow.......

Rose wreath and trees......

And a similar Santa.....

The mantel really comes to life at night with the lights on.....

I'll end my post by teasing  you with just a little peek at the left side and bottom of the fireplace......

  6. Your home always makes me feel like mine is just plain jane! you really know how to get Christmas going for all.

  7. Love the mantel, the bling you added to the windmill blades is great. I am really loving all your white and pink decorations for Christmas. I have a lot of vintage pink mercury glass ball ornaments but I'm going to have to add some more white and pink items to create a vignette like one of yours. They're all so fun and fabulous. Judy
