Vintage Christmas Mantel

When I think of Christmas, I think of glitter and sparkle … the way pure white snow sparkles in the sun.

I love color at Christmas, including silver and gold.

I found some beautiful, blingy holiday pieces to create a vintage Christmas mantel.

I’m sharing my holiday mantel today along with some of my blogging friends.

Links to their Christmas mantels are at the end of this post.

Vintage Christmas Mantel with Putz Houses and Bottle Brush TreesI have always loved these sparkly Putz houses and finally found some at half price.


Glittery Putz House on a Vintage Christmas MantelAll the glitter makes the little house look like it’s dusted with sparkly snow.


Bottle Brush Wreath with Glitter Putz House on a Vintage Christmas MantelA bottle brush wreath with glitter ornaments seemed like the perfect addition against my penmanship poster.

A silvery sparkle leaf garland adds a bit of bling to the barn wood shelf.


Glitter Glass Pine Cone OrnamentGlass blown pine cone ornaments hang over the side with the sparkly garland.


Glitter and Script Christmas StarI found this pretty, script Christmas star edged in gold glitter at Home Goods to adorn the vintage Christmas mantel.


Glitter Glass Owl on Vintage Christmas MantelA glittery white owl and reindeer candlesticks keep watch at one end …


Glitter Putz Church… while a glittered Putz church keeps watch at the other end.


Reindeer Candle HolderI found a set of 5 of these reindeer candlesticks at the flea market.


Vintage Christmas MantelTo add a bit of Christmas green, I layered a penmanship poster over a wooden print.
