Christmas Mantel Decor and free prints on { }

I love my job. It usually means I have to do things like decorate and bake for the holidays a little earlier than normal which makes me really happy!! More than anything, I just have a valid excuse to bust out the decor earlier than normal and I love that. My hubby can’t complain at all. 😉

Recently, I was asked to decorate for the holidays using some of Shutterfly’s Home Decor products. I was so excited to see the products they had and all the possibilities that could be made with them. I got to work right away and used these awesome products to decorate our mantel, which we recently re-did this year. I’m so excited with how it turned out and love my new pieces which gave my mantel the perfect festive touches for the holiday.

Here is my mantel close-up with all the fun, new pieces…


I love this BE MERRY Banner. I made it using Shutterfly’s Coasters. Yup – I designed these little guys and then drilled some holes in the corners. From there, I strung it with some ribbon for a very durable banner that looks like it came straight from the store. I LOVE it!

If you would like to PRINT this Be Merry Banner, then go to the following links for each letter: B – E – {TREE} – M – E – R – R – Y. 😉

I also ordered some of Shutterfly’s Custom Stockings



You have the option of adding photos to the Stockings, but I thought the names worked well since they are timeless. I also love that it just so happens that it goes GIRL (me), BOY (Lorin), GIRL (Lily), BOY (Gavin), GIRL (Evie), BOY (Wes), GIRL (Melody) so the colors worked well to have cream for the boys and red for the girls. Yes, there are quite a few stockings on our mantel, but we have a big family and I LOVE it!

I also wanted to get a few signs made for the mantel.

I started by making a Metal Print


Don’t you love it!? I may be slightly obsessed. I had my designer make this print last year, and now I have a 16×20 Metal Print of it that will last me forever. It is so beautiful and can be hung or placed on the mantel each year. 🙂

Over the past few months I have ordered a few of these Metal Prints, and I love them. They make the perfect gifts and look phenomenal!!

I’ve also ordered some Wood Wall Art pieces and love them just as much. They look great and can be made for so many different reasons. I made one to display our family’s travels, and I also recently made one for my cousin (who was recently married) using one of her engagement photos. I thought I would make a Christmas sign as well and designed this little guy who is perfect for our holiday mantel.

I also saw that they offer Photo Cubes and decided to make cubes of all my previous years’ Family Pictures that we’ve done for Christmas cards. I plan on making them each year with that year’s family pictures, and I’m so excited. I love how these three turned out.


Seriously?! SO CUTE!! I obviously love my little family and love how the cubes turned out.

They add just the right touch and can be displayed ALL YEAR LONG!

Lastly, I decided to make a few Holiday Candles to hand out as gifts….


They have several scents you can choose from and you can add photos or any custom designs to the front.

I decided to make a little Nativity Print, and JOY to the WORLD was a text you could add on Shutterfly.

Overall, I LOVE how the Christmas Mantel turned out.Yes, it’s busy but I LOVE busy and I love all the new pieces that make the mantel nice and festive. It’s very much me, so I obviously like it. 😉 JOY Candle
