20 Amazing Christmas Mantels

CHRISTMAS MANTEL IDEASChristmas is a magical time of the year and showing our love for the holidays always shines through on the inside with our fireplaces and trees. You can go with a simple look, or go very elaborate with a lot of decor. It is really what you like and what your style is. There is no right or wrong way of decorating your mantel (or shelf, if there is no mantel) as long as you have fun doing it and love the end product!

This was our mantel in 2012. I added some of my favorite pieces to show off and used lots of red ribbons and berries. Repurposing old Coca Cola boxes worked for this.Our Christmas Mantel A Blissful Nest{ A Blissful Nest Christmas Mantel 2012 }

Last year, I decided to go with a simple red and white scheme with touches of burlap. I had to add this chalkboard art and a banner with our last name to the mini tree!Our Christmas Mantel A Blissful Nest Last Year{ A Blissful Nest Christmas Mantel 2014 }
