Blogger Cassie created her oh-so-chic winter mantel on a shoestring budget. She overhauled a portico mirror she found on clearance and gave it a custom look by using Rub 'n Buff to get the metallic contrast. Tiny reindeer found at a craft store and dried magnolia leaves give the mantel a seasonal spin. Her personal collection of silver candlesticks keeps it classy. For a budget-friendly alternative, try getting candlesticks in bulk at Ikea.

Andrea let a gorgeous snowy photo she found on Shutterstock take center stage on her lovely winter mantel. She paired it with a round mirror, lattice chalkboard, white vases with branches and a mini hourglass timer. The chalkboard displays a sentimental quote by author Nicholas Sparks, which reads, "Love is like the wind; you can't see it but you can feel it."

Blogger Jessica created this chic winter mantel arrangement using a combination of organic material with a little metallic bling. The white feathered wreath is in front of a DIY antique mirror Jessica made and gives it a modern update. Glitter accents on the pinecones, candles and floral arrangement adds the perfect dose of sparkle.
