Beautiful fireplace Christmas decorations featuring a red tartan covered canvas, topped with a flocked Christmas wreath, garland, and red stockings.
Last year, I had the bright idea to cover a canvas with Christmasy red and white buffalo check fabric, thus creating custom Christmas art as part of my fireplace Christmas decorations. I did the same thing for my Halloween mantel this year. Well, guess what, I did it again. But this Christmas, I went with a red tartan.
Stockings and Garland
The red velvet stockings (medium size) are brand new this year. So new that I didn’t even have time to get them embroidered with our names yet. It’s fiiine. I’ll do it next year. I plan on filling these cute stockings for the boys anyway.
In case you’re wondering, I secure the stockings to the mantel with these handy little things.
Also, I beef up the long needle pine garland with more substantial picks. The picks were pretty big off-the-shelf, so I deconstructed them into smaller pieces using wire cutters. So keep that in mind when shopping for picks– you can always turn a giant pick into several smaller sections.
Red Tartan Canvas
The Christmasy canvas is really easy to make, but I can post the tutorial if you want to know. I feel like I didn’t get much feedback last year, so I never posted it. But the key to getting the canvas for an amazing price is to buy it on Black Friday. I scored my 30″ x 48″ canvas for 75% off. But I looked, and the size I purchased is on sale for $28, which is still a great price.
The tartan doesn’t totally mesh with the tree, but I couldn’t find red tartan gift wrap that I liked until last week, and then it was too late. So here we are.
And in case you missed it, here’s all the info on our Christmas tree.
