3 Ways to Style Your Fireplace Mantel

Seasonal Decor

read more

Decorating your fireplace mantel can be tricky, and if you’re like me and want a new look for each season/holiday it can get expensive. I have come up with three ways you can style your mantel using the same core anchor pieces, making it easier to switch out the smaller decor from season to season!

Everyday Look

farmhouse styled fireplace, arched mirror, wood sign, glass vases

First let’s establish our anchor pieces that will be used throughout all the different looks. My biggest focal point is the larger mirror. I chose this one because it is a perfect piece to use in layering without being distracting. The wood frame and simple design draws your eye in but doesn’t distract from the sign that’s in front of it. The other anchor pieces I have are the vases with tall flowers on each side. This works great to get everything symmetrical, making it ok to keep the mirror and large sign off-center because the vases bring balance to the whole display. Finally, for this everyday look, I added the “home” sign and wood beads as decor. They look great and are easy to switch out!

Spring Look

Spring farmhouse styled fireplace, arched mirror, large sign that says "Alright Spring do your thing" white tulips, glass vases

For my spring look I swapped out my “home” sign for this larger spring sign, and added some wood beads on the vases. I also found these cute glass bottles at the Target dollar spot and put some real touch tulips in each one to give it a spring touch. By keeping the anchor pieces I didn’t have to change a lot but got a whole new look for spring!!

Summer Look

Summer farmhouse styled fireplace, arched mirror, wood candle sticks, glass vases with faux greenery, boxwood wreath

For my summer look I did something a little different than before. I love lots of greenery in the summer so I wanted to show that. I changed the cotton stems I had in the glass vases to some faux seeded eucalyptus, added some faux succulents inside 2 different color mason jars, added a faux boxwood wreath over my mirror, and added some fun vintage candle sticks and candles. Just like before, I kept my anchor pieces the same and incorporated smaller/different decor for a new season and fresh look!!

Hearth & Hand Favorites

I don’t know about you but when Chip and Jo came out with a line of products at Target I was so excited!!! Since then I have purchase quite a few items from this line and compared prices and quality of the items to some of my other go to places for decor. I decided to put together a round up of my favorite items from the Hearth & Hand collection at Target to share with you all. These are the items I currently have in my home or things I just love and need to have!! Overall I have been really impressed with the items, the price point for the quality is great, the design is amazing (but would you expect anything less from Joanna Gaines, seriously) and the ease of getting it at Target or makes it even better! With that said here are my favorites!!
