Christmas Mantel Decor Ideas: Where to Begin

When deciding on a theme for your Christmas mantel decor, it’s helpful to start with a color scheme and style.

  • Do you like farmhouse/rustic, or are you into glam or even boho?
  • Will you go “big” with lots of volume or simple and minimalistic?
  • What will your anchor piece be above the mantel–a wreath, farmhouse sign, window frame, tobacco basket, or mirror? (Those are only a few examples!)

In the Christmas mantels below, you’ll find a mix of all of the above. Some decorators use traditional garlands, wood beads, or nothing at all. Others use satin ribbons, burlap, or velvet. You’ll find some Christmas mantels bursting with color while others use a neutral color palette.

Find a style that speaks to you and complements your Christmas tree decor for a complete holiday look.

    1. Thanks, Cindy! It’s hard to get the process started, isn’t it? If it weren’t for blogging, I’d probably drag my feet. I love sitting back and enjoying it once I’m done, though. Thanks for stopping by, and good luck with the decorating!
