Our Vintage Inspired Glam Christmas Mantel + Make Glittered Canvas Art

I dug up my glittery “JOY” DIY artwork and ourĀ Anthropologie inspired stockings, added some fresh greenery, used a couple of old and thrifted items and topped it all off with some twinkly LED lights to complete the look. Come have a look at our mantel decor this year, see how YOU can make this glittery DIY art, and get a free printable to do it!
