DIY Neutral Home Decor Piece and My Winter Mantel


I want to share with you an easy DIY Neutral Home Decor piece that I made for my winter mantel. 

You can watch me put this together and get a tour of my winter mantel on the YouTube video below. 



I found all of these supplies at Michael's. 

Emily and I took a trip to a new Michael's on my birthday. 

When we walked in the door, they had a new collection called Market Alphabet Soup that they had just put out on the shelves. 


The first piece that I saw and had to have was this distressed pallet. 

I knew this would be perfect for my winter mantel, but it's also neutral enough that it would be perfect for all-year round. 

When I began walking around, I found the letter "B," mason jar lid with knob, copper burlap flower, and resin keyhole piece and just started playing with how I wanted to lay it out on the pallet. 

This project took me around 10 minutes to put together. 

The letter B has a hanger on the back, so I just hammered in a nail to the pallet and hung the letter on the top left corner. 



The next thing I did, was hot glue the mason jar lid onto the keyhole resin piece. 




Then I hot glued the resin piece to the right side of the pallet. So easy!




The last piece to go on is the copper burlap flower. This is actually a magnet, so I just added on some hot glue to the magnet and adhered it to the bottom left corner.




Here is a look at it on my winter mantel. 

I layered it on top of my faux window and picket fence. 

I draped a yarn pom-pom banner across it. 





I love how this turned out. 

You could stencil on some words to each picket or I can change up the banner going across it for each season. 




Here is a look at the entire mantel. 



Here is a look at the fireplace. I added another yarn pom-pom banner across my faux gate fireplace cover. 

I added some pine cones to my red lanterns and I also added the red ladder and wreath from my craft room. 




Here is a look at the entire view of the mantel and fireplace 



It took me a while to get my mantel decorated for winter, but I am so happy with how it turned out and I love the new neutral home decor piece. 

This will be a fun piece to decorate for the year. 

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. 

Hugs, Shelly
