Throughout the years, my decor style has changed many times. In the past, my style tended towards whatever was trending at the moment. Who remembers when ducks, geese, and country blue was all the rage? I do! It reminds me of the game, duck, duck, goose! These days, I tend to lean towards a minimalistic sense of style and I really like this simple black and white Christmas mantel decor. It does have a touch of green.

Simple Black and White Christmas Mantel Decor
On the day after Thanksgiving, I always head to our church early in the morning to decorate for Christmas. A few years ago, I had my son-in-law build a faux fireplace to help our fellowship hall look more homey and welcoming.
I decorate the mantel seasonally, so that means taking down all the fall decor and putting it away before decorating for Christmas. It usually takes me about 5 hours to put up the tree and the rest of the decor, including wreaths on the doors.
The mantle decor usually includes a lighted garland but this year I wasn’t feeling it so it was left in its bin for this year. I also reuse items in order to stick with the budget. I didn’t spend a penny on decor this time around, even though it never looks exactly like it did the previous year.
The wreath and stockings are from Target. They are part of the Hearth & Hand™ with Magnolia Holiday Decor (Joanna Gaines). These were purchased last November, but they do have some pretty decor for this year as well.
The deer family on the mantle are from Sam’s Club. The deer family below are from Hobby Lobby. The ice garland is also from Hobby Lobby. The inexpensive snow-look fabric ties everything together.
The trees are from Home Goods (purchased last year as well).
There you have it – a simple black and white Christmas mantle decor.
