One of the most commonly decorated areas of a home for Christmas is the mantle. This is not only where you hang your stockings, but it is the perfect place to display decorative items.
The following ideas will help you decorate your Christmas mantle.
Use Distressed Wood Frames
If you have pictures on your mantle, and many people do, you don’t have to take them down just because it’s Christmas. Instead, keep the pictures up, but switch out the picture frames. Even if you already have great looking frames, now is a good time to put away the white frames and bring out some distressed wooden frames.
This really adds a fun look to your mantle since the rest of your Christmas décor is probably white, silver, and pastel colors. It adds some nature to your mantle without getting too far away from the look that you want. For a bit of fun, you can even switch out the pictures and replace them with pictures of angels, snowmen, Santa and Mrs. Clause, as if they were friends and family members.
Create A Village On The Mantle
Many people create a Christmas village and put it on a table, but why not put it right on your mantle? It keeps it high enough to be away from kids or cats who are a little too curious, as well as being in a room where your family probably spends a lot of time during the holidays. Not only that, it is a convenient place to spread around twinkle lights and plug them in, allowing you to easily illuminate your Christmas village.
Use Vintage Items On Your Mantle
For more traditional decorating of the mantle, you might want to use various decorative accessories and figurines. Try to find items that are vintage or at least have that old-fashioned look to them. Some items that work perfectly include an old pair of white ice skates, vintage milk jugs and bottles, large mercury glass ornaments or Santa Clause figurines that have the old suit as opposed to the bright red suit and hat of the more modern styles.
Add Spray Painted Bottle Brush Trees
Bottle brush Christmas trees are really popular during Christmas since they are inexpensive and always add a fun element.
