I don't know about y'all, but it is beginning to look like Christmas around here! I am so excited about decorating for the holidays this year. I have worked hard at incorporating my own personal color and style into our family's Christmas decorations. It took me years of decorating for the holidays before I really started to embrace my love of color. Some of my favorite colorful DIY's are my hand-painted ornaments, pom pom stockings and my colorful vintage style Christmas posters. Now every inch of my Christmas home decor reflects my style. I love looking for new ways to use color at Christmas. This year I looked from new Christmas mantel ideas, and I was not disappointed! There are so many color lovers out there that need permission to step out of the traditional holiday colors and do what you love. I hereby release you from red and green and give you the go-ahead to embrace your rainbow this year. Check out these Christmas mantel decorating ideas for all the inspiration you need!
