Magnolia Wreath Christmas Mantel Decor

I am loving my Magnolia wreath Christmas mantel decor. I’ve long loved the magnolia wreath and it’s my favorite new decor item. Enjoy the tour of my mantel!

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah! Are you singing it yet? The Hallelujah Chorus, that is? I mean, it’s finally time to share this year’s Christmas decor (part 1) and I’m just so excited! In a home decor blogger’s world, this is the culmination of the year. The Super Bowl. The Coronation Day. It’s the pinnacle of all of the decorating posts for the rest of the year. The Christmas Home Tour.

Each year I like to change things up a bit and add new elements, rearrange old elements, and keep some sweet traditions right in place. Let’s take a tour of the magnolia wreath Christmas mantel, shall we? I share some of the living room, too, and a sneak of the kitchen, but this is mostly about the star of the show: the mantel. This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.

I’ve mentioned before that I start planning out my Christmas mantel months in advance. I search online for inspiration and gather new items and wait for inspiration to strike. Last month, I shared about my DIY Cathedral Window project (click here) and how I fell in love with the gorgeous magnolia wreath from Magnolia Market. It’s one of my favorite things right now.

It’s been up on the mantel for a couple of months now, and as inspiration strikes, I just add a little thing here and take a little thing away there. And eventually I end up with what I want to share on my blog.

Last year, I needed some pretty Christmas artwork to fill the gallery wall in my living room. So, I purchased these two watercolor prints from Gracelaced. I don’t need them in my gallery wall this year because I finally filled it up with personal pictures, so I wasn’t sure where I was going to use them this year.

As I was pulling out my Christmas decor, I ran across them and thought they would look perfect on my mantel. I love that one is a Scripture and one is a hymn.

The “joy” is from the dollar spot at Target. When I saw it, I knew it would look perfect nestled in my new magnolia wreath. I painted it with leftover sample paint in Stratton Blue (Benjamin Moore).

The navy plaid ribbon on the candles and navy buffalo check pillows are a nod to my new ribbon for the big tree in my dining room. That will be revealed in due time, my friend. (As in next week, so make sure to stop back by!)

Actually the pillows have been on my wish list for at least a year. I wanted to play up navy plaid and buffalo check this year, so I just had to snatch them up! Granted I hold my breath any time the kids get near them, but they are so worth it. I may just keep them in the guest bedroom for a while since my girls don’t go in there.

I couldn’t help myself. I just had to have this cute Christmas countdown from Target. So stinking’ cute! I can’t wait to move it each day with my girls. One tradition that we’ve always had is that the tree in the living room has all of our special family ornaments. It’s a hodge podge of ornaments that mean something to us. I get the girls an ornament each Christmas that represents something that they loved that year.

This year my oldest is getting a box of crayons ornament to commemorate her first year of kindergarten. And the little one is getting a baby doll ornament because she looooves baby dolls. If I could find a diaper ornament, I’d probably get it, because her favorite thing is to change her baby’s diaper. It’s so cute!

One thing I did differently this year, is that I tried to add some pretty things to the tree, like the wooden skis and the plaid ribbon. I’ve always just added the ornaments and never thought about doing ribbon too. Duh! Just because it has personal ornaments on it, doesn’t mean it can’t look like it came out of a Pottery Barn catalog. Ha!

And because the tree is in the living room where we spend almost all of our time, I put all of the non-breakable ornaments on the bottom so that little hands can play with them. My girls love to take them off and play with them during the day and rearrange them back on the tree at night before bed. It’s all part of making your home work for your family and creating a space they will love.

Now, don’t be fooled. The big tree in the dining room has a bunch of breakable ornaments on it and I keep it safe with some extended baby gates. Ha! You can see my real life look at my creative central station dining room and big tree on Instagram (click here). It’s a mess, y’all! A few more pictures to send you off!
