Our Neutral Christmas Mantel

The Christmas Reveals continue.. Here is our Family Room Mantel. We kept it simple and a little Rustic thanks to the use of Burlap, Jute and Wood accents.
So our mantel is part of this built-in drywall media unit.. For one of our open displays I used wood planks with a  painted deer head, hand painted by moi.. we placed it over our wooden sailboat art. I added a Large wooden glittery star (Homesense) and a glass jar full of Metal Chain linked garland (Homesense)

Across the front of our Mantel shelf I casually laid a string of Brown jingles bells.
On either side of our mirror I placed these great trees.. I picked up from a Garage Sale during the summer.. You can just imagine how excited I was to decorate for the holidays in the middle of AUGUST lol.. I just switched out the ugly gold wire that was wrapped around the burlap for some red and cream striped ticking fabric that I had torn for a relaxed shabby look. Believe wooden blocks tie all the neutrals together.
Here is a wooden Snow sign I made... It points to our backyard.. Where our once beautiful pool is now covered with Snow!!! I will now be making seasonal signs.. I can't believe I didn't think of it till now!
Hanging off our Mantel shelf is 3 burlap stockings with different fabric ruffles that I ordered on Etsy last christmas but wasn't able to use them, so I finally got to display them.. Yay. 
Subtle Red checkered and ticking stripe fabric tie into our Christmas Pillows.
