I love decorating throughout my home for all different holidays. One of my favorite things to decorate in my home is my fireplace mantel. I try to use a lot of the same decorations year to year. My mantel is decorated very similar to last year with just a few changes.
The paper hearts that we created here at The Shabby Tree is something I like to add every year to my mantel.
You can find the directions for the paper hearts right here https://theshabbytree.com/diy-paper-hearts/
I recently found some styrofoam hearts from the Dollar Tree that we got creative with.
You can see how we turned the foam hearts into these beautiful lace hearts right here https://theshabbytree.com/dollar-tree-jumbo-craft-heart-makeover/
I found the beautiful wooden hearts shown in photo above in Home Goods. These hearts have lace and beads on the front side. We got creative here at The Shabby Tree and created something similar to these hearts.

I have an old frame that I turned into a message board hanging in the center of my mantel. You will also see a lace heart that we created out of a simple wire hanger in the center of my mantel.

I placed an angel in the center next to the lace hanger heart. This was an angel that I purchased from Hobby Lobby and we gave her a makeover. You can see how we changed her up right here https://theshabbytree.com/diy-decorative-angel-tree-topper/
I always try to have a garland hanging on my mantel with lights . You will see a tree at the bottom of my mantel and a barrel with hydrangeas.

I get asked a lot about the twinkle lights that I have on my tree. You can find our twinkle lights right here on our website https://theshabbytreeboutique.com/shop/p/twinkle-lights-with-brown-cord
I hope my mantel will inspire you to have fun and get creative when decorating your home.
