A holiday mantel mood by @HarlowAndThistle

Cake Stand DIY Holiday Decor Ideas

Who says you need a fireplace to decorate a mantel? We love Andrea’s DIY faux-fireplace idea!

She brought it to life with a display of candles and lanterns, perched on an adorable cake plate and cake stand on one end of the mantel. And two gold reindeer on the other side of the mantel. Psst- the reindeer are almost sold out, so if you love them, head in-store now! Finally, hang a few mismatched stockings and see what Santa leave in your stocking.

For those of you with a more traditional decor aesthetic, Andrea came up with something for you too. With similar items, and a fresh coat of paint, this is a fun project for the family to enjoy together.

Kitchen corners transformed for Christmas by @Love_Create_Celebrate

This corner of Lindi’s kitchen was made merry with a few simple touches of decor. Some sprigs of greenery to the edges and a holiday tea towel to the side of the bar card will keep this corner looking festive. She also added some glasses, a couple of stylish decanters and a brand new cordless wine bottle opener to get ready for that annual Christmas party coming up!

And don’t forget that gorgeous 3-tier serving platter of irresistible treats!

The modern mantel by @ColleenPastoor

We’re loving Colleen’s choice of neutral colour palette and use of texture here. These trees are the perfect size for the mantel, or scattering around on the kitchen or bathroom counters, on end tables, and even as a centrepiece. Add a few of those beaded pinecone ornaments that are available in-store and some little fairy lights, and your mantel top is ready to shine!

Faux Fur stockings

As for the stockings, Colleen used our lovely faux fur stockings and dressed them up with our simple white metal snowflake ornaments. Visit us in-store for some great savings on ornaments, starting at $2.99.

Burlap Christmas Tree

Balance out your sentimental vintage items with this sleek LED Christmas tree, coupled with the burlap Christmas Trees for more texture. And for that element of serenity, add a soothing essential oil diffuser and try some holiday scents!

Moving to the kitchen, here is the perfect way to repurpose our storage canisters. Great for actual storage (from kitchen to bathroom), Thalita transformed them into giant snow globes! A little sugar, a few old ornaments, a couple bottle brushes for tree, and voila!
