BEST CHRISTMAS MANTEL DECORATING IDEAS

There's no better feeling than cozying up to a warm winter fireplace–especially if the fireplace mantel is as decked out as the halls! The Christmas tree doesn’t have to be the only focal point of your home, and we're firm believers in the power of a well-decorated holiday mantel. From twinkling lights and bottle brush trees, to a Christmas village or even a lush garland, we're breaking down some of our favorite Christmas mantel decorations to add to your home this holiday season!

In need of easy Christmas decorations that will work in any area of the home? Two words: glass trees. Not only are they cute and classic, they look extra eye-catching atop a fireplace, roaring fire or not. Pick up a few in any color scheme you desire, add a few other festive accents, and you've got yourself a top tier Christmas mantel!

If traditional trees aren't sparking your Christmas light, then these bright checkered ones are for you! They make such a stunning statement in your living room, set alone, or with a coordinating garland.

And since we love all things bold and colorful, we mixed and matched a few different checkered-tree sets. From black and white to pink and red, there are so many different ways to add variety to your mantel, so get creative and make it your own!

Let's talk about garlands! It's a no-brainer that your Christmas mantel would not be complete without one or two... or three! Layering a few sparkly garlands adds so much dimension and character to any mantel. It's also a whimsical way to add pops of color to your traditional Christmas decorations!

Don't fret, we haven't forgotten to hang our stockings by the chimney with care! This Christmas mantel gives us all the warm holiday feels, and is super simple to recreate for a classic holiday tableau. We coordinated these adorable belsnickle Santas with matching velvet stockings and draped a simple evergreen garland over top. Pair with knit stockings for a more rustic farmhouse feel. 

Craving even more Christmas magic? Find it with a mantel adorned with a mini holiday village! These glistening snow-covered houses bring the most inviting and awe-inspiring atmosphere. They also make fun collectables to expand upon year after year!

It truly does not get any cuter than this festive Santa tableware collection! These holly jolly pieces are meant to be displayed in your home and look absolutely adorable arranged on a Christmas mantel. To add a little more elegance, we put a fresh winter bouquet in this Papa Noel punch bowl. This cute mantel decor is sure to leave a fa-la-la-la-lasting impression on all your holiday guests!

Oh deer, this mantel has us stopped in our tracks! We can’t help but add some balloons into the holiday decor scene, and we love how adorable these letters are! A red balloon mosaic like this is perfect for a Christmas party, or as a playful holiday decoration to leave up all season long! How’s that for a Christmas mantel idea?

You can’t go wrong with traditional red and green. So for this Christmas mantel, we adorned our fireplace with simple red and white garlands, and a bold pop of evergreen. All the classic Christmas vibes!

Calling all bright and bold lovers, we’ve got the colorful mantel of your dreams! Deck your halls with these assorted silk garlands!
