If you love distressed finishes, take a cue from this mantel display by Jenn Fenton of the mother-and-daughter team at 2 Bees in a Pod. With the large hanging map as a backdrop, the collection of smaller pieces in front offers loads of personality. Create your own gathering like this by lining up a large metal snowflake and coordinating red tin, a beat-up wood snowshoe, a cloche accent, a seasonal sign and a wood tree. Tuck sprigs of pine around the pieces for just the right amount of Christmas green.
INSIDER TIP Vintage snowshoes can be pricey, but you’ll score a better deal if you search out singles missing their mate or damaged-but-stilldecorative pieces.
