‘Tis the season to deck the halls, but what about decorating your mantel? Your fireplace is the “hearth of the home” during this time of year and is the perfect space to go all out. Plus, what better way to greet Santa than with a decked-out mantle? Here are some beautiful and festive holiday mantel ideas that will bring another layer of joy and holiday spirit to your home.
Country Barn Charm
This little red barn mantel topper is a quintessential accent for any country theme. Small country-style Christmas trees on the mantel and lighted garland round out the look.
This beautifully adorned mantel celebrates the reason for the season. A spiritual message written on a basic chalk board lends a rustic touch while a sparkling nativity scene sits at the base of the hearth. This is a glorious arrangement that welcomes and sets the tone of the season.
This fun and festive mantel-scape pops with red and green. A simple arrangement of red berries and ornaments grabs your attention while smaller arrangements of red seasonal flowers and red votives add just the right pop of color. And, can we talk about the adorable mini flower “presents?” They are the perfect standout to this fashionable mantel-scape.
Improvising: No Fireplace? No Problem
Not everyone has a fireplace, but that doesn’t stop them from making their own version of a mantel. This decked out piano is a clever and whimsical way to improvise and show off your creative side. And on the practical side, there’s still room to play your favorite Christmas carols.
Blue (and Green) Christmas
Who said a “Blue Christmas” was a bad thing? This blue and green mantel- scape takes on a whole different tone and adds a sense of whimsy to the room. It’s a fresh take on a classic look with tiny trees wrapped in blue burlap with matching blue patterned stockings.
Any Holiday Will Do
Using the mantel as your centerpiece for your holiday covers all holidays. So don’t forget to decorate it up for Hanukkah. Using the mantel to highlight the menorah, easily makes it the center of attention. Whether the look is elegant and simple with pine cones and greenery, or something a bit more festive with blue and white ornaments, the mantel will bring everyone together.
Pinecones are one of nature’s gifts that bring beauty and simplicity to any room. This natural mantel-scape is the perfect backdrop for the season and is an easy way to fill the space with simple beauty.
