One of the first places I decorate in my home each holiday season is my mantel, as I really use this space to set the tone for the rest of my holiday decor. This year, I opted to use a red, lime green and gold color scheme for my mantel display, incorporating a number of DIY elements to create the look I wanted. With rich gold tones and juxtaposed against vibrant pops of red and lime green, this mantel display is as lively as it is luxe. I am so pleased with how it came together!
My first project for the display was to sew a set of classic cuffed stockings in a variety of modern prints from Premier Fabrics. (I also used their fabric for my son’s nursery, which I shared about at the beginning of this year.) Although I loved the whimsical stockings I sewed for last year’s mantel display, I wanted something a bit more traditional this time around, so I set to work designing stockings with a more classic silhouette.
