Christmas Mantel Decor
Today I have joined thirty-four other bloggers as we share Christmas Mantel Decor! There are so many gorgeous ideas found below so be sure to scroll down to see them all!
Decorating a mantel for Christmas is always fun to do. I love that the fireplace is usually the center of the room and adding decor to the mantel makes it even more of a focal point. You will see from the photos below of the mantels decorated by my blogger friends, there are a lot of different ways to add Christmas mantel decor.
I decorated the mantel in our master bedroom by adding green and red faux greens. I am using a lot of berries in my decor this year and I love how it turned out.
As you can see in the closeup photo above, I used three different types of frosted red berries and lots of different types of greenery.
I pulled out all of my Christmas greens and was able to decorate the mantel with things I already owned. I call that “shopping your own home”.
This is what I started with. This mantel was pretty boring and in need of lots of color!
When I decorate a mantel I focus on three different areas. They are the two outside edges and the middle. Note the direction the greens are facing. I start by placing greens in these areas and then continue “filling in “.
What a difference the red berries make!
I love that there is a focal point in the center of the mantel. I think it creates a great balance with the greenery.
Also, I always hang the stockings on the right side of the mantel. I don’t know why, but they just looks more aesthetically pleasing on the right side.
Here are the other 34 mantels that my friends put together. Aren’t they incredible?
