How To Style a Fun Christmas Lodge Style Mantel

For as long as I can remember I have always dreamed of a home with a wood-burning fireplace and a beautiful mantel.  Something I can decorate with every season and holiday and when it comes to Christmas decorating…..well, it would be over-the-top gorgeous!  I have wanted this for as long as I can remember.

Now, I haven’t moved (yet) but last year I decided to stop my whining and DIY my own faux fireplace.

I made this one (someday I’ll share the tutorial) and I am so glad I did because now I have a mantel to decorate.

I couldn’t wait to deck it out for Christmas.  I decided to decorate it in a bit of a Lodge Style.  I knew because of its size I couldn’t go full on Lodge but that was the vibe I wanted to create.

Where to Start – Christmas Lodge Style Mantel

I needed some new decor (of course!) so I headed to At Home and shopped their Christmas decor.  Oh. My. Heavens.  They had more choices than I honestly think I have ever seen.  I spent 3 quiet blissful hours going down aisles and putting items in my cart.  It was awesome!

Instead of going with a wreath, I chose this beautiful Joy to the World framed picture.  I’m not sure if you can tell but it has a 3-D look.  The picture of the tree is beneath the glass frame and Joy to the World is painted on the glass.

Then, I saw this little clips and since they were numbered 1 to 24 I knew this would be my Advent Calendar inspiration for this year.

They had some vintage-vibe bags, large and small, and I bought each.  I’m going to use the larger ones for gift-giving but the smaller ones are being used to hold candy.

I attached the small bags to the clips and I’ll add some small tags, etc., to the other numbers for the Advent calendar.

How To Style a Fun Christmas Lodge Style Mantel - faux fur throw on Chair for Christmas from At Home

I needed a throw for my chair and of course, it had to be faux fur.  It’s Christmas, I’m going for a lodge look….fur is a must and I really like the under-color of the red.

It pulls everything together perfectly.

I topped the throw with this super cute pillow that goes with a yearly theme I have of Trees on Cars.

I added some decor I already had to round out the look but I am thrilled with the way my mantel turned out!

Do you have a yearly theme for your Christmas decor?
