15 Minute Cozy Winter Hearth


Happy Wednesday, Friends! Just after posting my 15 Minute Winter Whimsy Mantel, I scored a pair of fabulous handmade mittens. They're so bright and cheerful, I decided to add them to the hearth as a cozy greeting. Ready to see this week's 15 minute fix?

Ever since I upcycled my faux fireplace, I've had fun extending my seasonal mantel decor to the hearth area. Remember this sparkly pom-pom garland I used during the holidays? It reminds me of snowballs and I love it paired with the playful mittens. First, I hung the looped ends of the garland over the corners of the reclaimed door insert. Next, I used Tacky to position the mittens, almost as if the top one was extending its "hand" in a wave to say....

{I found that fun galvanized greeting on clearance at Hobby Lobby.} Now for a few more quick accents to cozy up the rest of the hearth. A comfy winter white pillow is tucked behind a wire urn of thrifted crochet thread.

This fuzzy little bird was with the Christmas clearance at Tuesday morning. Isn't he cute? He's really soft too.

A peek at the completed hearth...

Did you notice the crocheted runner, a recent find draped over the slipper chair?

  4. I just came across your blog this morning and like a bad pick up line all I can say is, it should be Friday cause, "I'm in LOVE". How clever to drape the crocheted runner over the chair!

  5. Very sweet! Except for the mittens it can all transfer right into Spring. I know it is only January but I am so ready to decorate for Spring. I am taking all of my winter décor to decorate at my birthday party and then it is all getting put away!
