Simple Eucalyptus Styled Mantel

I had this idea to run by my local Home Depot to nab excess branches in their throw-away pile (to use as a garland) like I’ve done in years past but alas, I forgot I live in Phoenix, Arizona and our Christmas tree lots don’t make their debut until mid-December as the tree branches get too crusty and brittle if you put them out too early. Instead of using faux, I simply walked out my front door with some kitchen shears and snipped a few branches from my eucalyptus tree just a few feet from my porch. It was much more convenient and total cost was $0, holla!

Supplies to make a Simple Eucalyptus Styled Mantel

I’ve had this awesome chalkboard that’s been my go-to to double as an accent piece, center stage for a wreath display, or just as a station for my nieces/nephews to scribble on! I simply had Kristi freehand JOYEUX NOEL across the board. BAM. Instant Christmas decor!

Scribble a Christmasy phrase or word on a chalkboard, add some eucalyptus branches + candles and BAM: Simple wintery Christmas mantel with chalk art... feel festive without all the frills! Click through to see how this was put together! #diy #christmasdecorations #winterdecor

Directions to make a Simple Eucalyptus Styled Mantel

  1. Cut/acquire eucalyptus branches
  2. Drape eucalyptus branches across mantel
  3. Place chalkboard against wall (or hang above) over the eucalyptus branches
  4. Place candles across mantel (we did 2 trios on either side of the chalkboard)
  5. Tip: Set 1-2 candles on candlesticks or mini cake stands for height variations
  6. Add a few festive springs of pine branches or berries within eucalyptus branches
  7. That’s it! Garnish with anything else you prefer but we prefer to keep ours as minimalist and simple this year! (Wish us luck, haha)
