20 Gorgeous Holiday Mantel Ideas
These Holiday Mantel Ideas for Christmas are a mix of elegant and charming. I do not have a fireplace but I wish I did. I would definately be trying some of these out. If you have a fireplace to dress up for the holidays, be very thankful. The mantel becomes the centerpiece in most homes during the Christmas season. It’s the traditional place where we hang our stockings and where children, filled with anticipation, watch and dream about Santa making his grand entry on Christmas Eve.
Since the fireplace mantel is one of the focal points for Christmas decor, it only makes sense to dress it in style.
Debbie with Confessions of a Plate Addict shares with us her very festive fireplace. The country-style she chose really gives this mantel some southern charm. She uses rustic barn house lanterns and perks them up with led Christmas candles. A well-used mirror perched in the middle and the grapevine wreath give it an Earthy feel. I really like the burlap stockings. You can purchase them plain and dress them up with felt, ribbons or whatever you like.
Kristin with Yellowblissroad made her white fireplace absolutely breathtaking. A snow sprinkled garland makes a winter wonderland when mixed with golden snowflakes and pine cone laden wreaths. The white stockings make the setup look serene and peaceful.
Wow, this is one of the most stunning holiday mantel ideas I have seen. This fireplace reflects the beauty of winter with the warmth of a cozy and inviting home. Notice how an old wooden crate is stuffed with greenery and bits of twigs with berries? The birch tree branches and ice skates make a fun statement.
This DIY wooden sign makes a complimentary statement. Greenery, birch logs and a bait bucket tie in a rustic theme. The small fir-tree with burlap trim is evenly balanced out with some stacked books. A simple style but oh so charming.
This luxurious styled Christmas fireplace features designs from Pier 1 Imports. The embroidered snowflake mantel scarf is stunning. If you are crafty, you can probably make one very similar to this. I love the clean look that this design has.
Instead of traditional stockings, this mantel is dressed with a cute Kringle mantel scarf. The textures and varying lengths create a brightly colored focal point. The jingle bell tips are extra cute. Just add some little trees, gift boxes or candy jars.
Wow, look at this gorgeous home! The icy aqua blues are the perfect colors for a winter holiday. This homeowner painted birch trees onto wood for a unique touch to this homemade masterpiece.
