A few months ago, Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores asked Made + Remade to host a Blogger Challenge in which five bloggers — three regular M+R contributors and two more popular crafting bloggers — could pitch their design ideas for the mantel at HGTV Holiday House. We shared the inspiration board for Holiday House with each of the bloggers, and they created mantel decorations using products from their local Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store, among other items.
We were so excited to see the results of this Blogger Challenge. And it was really hard keeping them a secret — until now, because we’re thrilled to (finally!) share the five bloggers’ Christmas mantel designs with you. You can browse through the designs here and find links to each blogger’s mantel post below.
But there’s still a little secret we have to keep. You’ll have to wait until October 15 to find out whose winning design inspired the mantel decorations at HGTV Holiday House.
POST UPDATE (10/15/13): We have a mantel design challenge winner! The HGTV Holiday House design team chose Amy Bell’s luxe and rustic look to inspire the mantel decor. Congratulations, Amy! The team had a hard time choosing and loved all the bloggers’ ideas, so they were excited to incorporate some additional projects around the fireplace and in other spots in the house. See Amy’s mantel design in the HGTV Holiday House mantel photo gallery and more Made + Remade bloggers’ projects in this round-up of rustic-chic decorating ideas.
