Hi everyone! If your like me you are dreaming of Spring at this point…so what better time than now to show you my Winter Mantel! Ha! I just realized I haven’t shown you my rustic/glam/vintage/wintery mantel yet….and since I’ll be switching it for Spring soon, I thought I’d better get my act in gear and show you some pictures!
For me winter decorating is all about adding lots of white, lots of texture and candlelight to bring in some much needed warmth to these cold snowy days! I also like to add a pop of green to add some color… our home is surrounded by evergreen pine trees and cedars so green ties right in perfectly, color wise, to our home.
Everything I used to decorate my mantel this winter are items I already owned… except for the 4 new-to-me vintage crystal wine glasses/compotes/drinking glasses that I picked up at my thrift store – 4 for $3.99! What a bargain for crystal! I honestly can’t believe it!
Mantel Decorating Ideas for Winter:
My winter mantel is a mixture of rustic (birch candles and antlers), glam and sparkle (showstopping mirror, mercury glass, disco balls and crystal), vintage ( crystal wine glasses) and nature (boxwood).
Two disco balls add a touch of sparkle and fun! This girl loves a little ‘Saturday Night Fever’ in her life! 🙂
Birch candles, boxwood orbs and green candles:
I love these white antlers!
I bought 4 vintage crystal wine glasses at the thrift store and filled them with epsom salts and a votive to add some pretty candlelight!
The thrift store is a great place to buy mismatched vintage crystal compotes and wine glasses – use them on your mantel!
I hope you enjoyed my winter mantel decorating ideas today! I’ll be showing you my Spring Mantel soon so stay tuned!

Ohh I love that sparkly disco ball fireplace…super cute!!! Christine from Little Brags
Thanks Christine!! Aren’t the disco balls pretty? 🙂
I LOVE your mirror! Where is it from?
Hi Alex! It’s from HomeSense (same sort of store as HomeGoods) ! 🙂
Thank you for sharing this idea. I would have thought that crystal was too delicate to use for candles but now I am looking at my pieces in a new way.
I love this idea, and since putting Christmas away have been trying to figure out what I want to do with my mantel. I have lots of pretty mismatched items and candleholders. I think I’ll put them to good use. Thanks for the ideas!

Oh my GOSH!! Fabulous ideas!! I have been bored with my decor of 10 years now but never thought to update my mantel !!! Adding the colors for the seasons and the theme pieces is genius! Thank you as always for your inspirations !
I love the yellow for spring, but for now I love the greenery you put with the bling. The new Pantone color of the year for 2017 is “greenery”!
Very pretty!! I’ve always loved your Beach Mantel as well.

I do not have a mantle, but I will be including this on my tables!
Great idea Mary Ellen!! Have a beautiful week and thanks for visiting! xo Heather
Your mantle looks beautiful. I like the mix of items, I love candles. I am inspired to do something new with mine.
Thank you Marian! So glad you like my winter mantel decor ideas and have fun decorating yours! xo Heather
So pretty and I like how you brought in the green for the color of the year. The mantel ties in really nicely to winter whites but then you have the freshness of the green; perfect.
I meant to ask if you know what the diameter is of your mirrored balls. I found some on Amazon that are 8″; would those work?
Yes – this size will work! http://amzn.to/2jVU1uB
