Oh Come Let Us Adore Him – Christmas Mantel Decoration

December 19th, 2014

Decorating for holidays is always harder in a new house. I love all my Christmas decor, but our new house has a more simple feel to it. So as I was brainstorming my mantel, I kept trying to distill it down to a clean and simple design. I just love how it turned out. It’s so striking in person. Simple, but makes a statement. literally. theprojectgirl-ohcome-mantel-vinyl

I created the “Oh Come Let Us Adore Him” using Silhouette matte black vinyl and my Silhouette CAMEO and Silhouette’s really awesome Vinyl Roll Feeder which makes cutting big lengths of vinyl a breeze. .

 I kept the decor simple by using a monochrome color pallet. White everything, with simple fresh greenery and black text. I made the same white village houses that I had made for my Christmas tree this year.

Simple white doily trees add a little variation to the simple skyline. And I made a few white garlands to layer over the white stockings.

All the textures and layers of white give the monochromatic scheme a lot of depth, and nothing competes with the gorgeous reclaimed wood fireplace surround.

I love how this mantel looks and feels in my house, and am excited for not having to think so hard next year!
