As you can see, I’m no minimalist when it comes to this Coca Cola Christmas fireplace mantel.
And this year is no exception. My Coca Cola star inspired design was a direct result of a lucky recent find. The black metal Cola Cola sign had just come home from a recent trip at Granny and Grumpa’s.
How I did it
The evergreens I had available to me were of the flat variety, so in order to get such a full look, I pulled a few tricks.
The sign was first put into place,then the branches were layered. But with flat branches, it helped to stand many on their sides so you could appreciate them.
My first attempt was weak and I had to redo it. The scale of this fireplace is always screaming for more.
Here you can see more of the layering. The branches behind the sign are on their sides so they filled up the space with as much green as possible.
And I stuck them in like crazy from the front too. Here’s a side view of the overhang.
Ok, we are ready to spray on some snow and decorate!
The greens were sprayed in a heavy handed sort of spotty way where snow would naturally land and stay put.
Then stars and spent hydrangeas were tucked into place along with loosely hung mini lights.
Hey, wanna see it at night? It’s really glowy.
One total casual messy loose junk styled Christmas fireplace mantel.
It’s a little crazy, but I’m liking it just fine. 🙂
Here’s my last year’s fireplace mantel.

Gorgeous! You oughta be paid by Coca Cola, no advertising agency could do it better than this.
Love your junk style mantel!
I like it just fine too! This year I used a combo of fake greens and real ones. I love all of your Christmas ideas, the rustic theme is just what I like!
Love your Coca Cola themed mantel. Fun and festive.
Love your style Donna!
Just love this. Great job!
Ohhhh Donna, your fireplace mantle is absolutely PERFECT and I wish I had a mantle because I’d copy yours, for sure!
Love all the details! Such a great wintery look, Donna!
What a fun idea! You had me at the snow 🙂 That rock fireplace is amazing!
Thank you so much for inspiring me today!
I love it. I’m a fan of Coke so this is just perfect. Thanks for sharing. Hugs.
Oh Man do I miss my fireplace! My home has a Vermont Castings wood burning stove instead of a fireplace. It can heat most of my home and send us out in the snow with our bathing suits on it gets so warm, but you can’t decorate it like you can a mantle. Anyway….. What I really want to say is I love love love your mantle so much. Coca Cola has a special place in my heart anyway (I think it’s a ‘southern’ thing) and your mantle is so cool! I just love it. If there is a mantle contest – I vote for you Donna!
Its wonderful! Coke is our family’s favorite! karen…
looks so good love it more than last year but i love all the greenery so that may be why. ang
I think it looks great! I have not done our mantle yet, but it’s so narrow I can’t get too much on it. But I have fun trying! Love your old sled…and that Coke sign…awesome!
Beautiful! What a clever idea to use the old sign, I would have never thought of that. Also I like the way you sprayed your greens with snow, it adds a nice touch. Stone fireplaces can be so overpowering to a room, your looks awesome!
Donna love your mantle! Love the greens,the coca cola sign and crate LOVE it all! So rustic and woodsy!
Your Mantel is fantastic!! It’s just great. love the lights the snow by the sleigh and how you incorporate the vintage Coke-A-Coca…great.
