It seems like Christmas is here so fast this year! By this weekend, we’ll only have three weeks left before Christmas, eeeeeek! I always decorate the house on the first weekend of December and now that we’re living in the country we can go to a Christmas tree farm to get one, so this Friday is the day!
And I’m so excited to have two mantels to decorate this year. Here are some pretty mantels to inspire yours this season!
I love how this one is coordinated with the wreath hanging above it.
Love this decorating idea of just using Christmas balls.
You can’t go wrong with live cedar with pine cones and hanging branches although this would not last a month inside.
White urns filled with sparkly balls and three perfect wreaths is a lovely, clean way to dress up a mantel.
Notice that the best holiday mantels are paired with either a wreath or a mirror. You would have to keep the arrangement simple like this one if you wanted to keep the art you normally hang above the fireplace.
Here the original art remains but the mantel is kept simple with greens + white.
Behind this image is a tutorial for creating Pottery Barn like Christmas garland from Between Naps on the Porch.
