Frame TV above the mantel with holiday screen

This year was a first for me…decorating around a framed TV over my mantel. Can you relate?

Whether you have a TV or not, see this as the space for your inspiration piece.  For me, I downloaded Frame TV art here and here.  Or you can hop on YouTube for free, Winter/Holiday frame tv art.

Holiday Mantel Decor Idea: Greenery For Your Mantel

Incorporating greenery into your Christmas mantel decor is always a good idea!

But what you choose to use is up to you! Faux or real? Simple, draped garland or thick strands of garland with oversized jingle bells tied to them? I chose faux with a mix of flocked and unflocked garlands.  For a finishing touch, I placed some faux stems into the garland.

Command hooks to hold greenery in place

Protip: Use command strips to secure the greenery and additional garlands like the MERRY CHRISTMAS one in place.

You can also use wreaths to hang above your wall art (or TV) to give added height, as well as, small Christmas trees.

Holiday Mantel Decor Idea: Lights And/Or Candles For Your Mantel

Battery powered lights to garland

Just like with greenery, you have several options when adding a cozy glow to your Christmas mantel decor and fireplace surrounds.

I love having battery-powered Christmas lights strung through the garland which is what I did here.

Another element to consider is candles (real or battery powered); the glow at night + the fire just shouts, cozy Christmas feels! Battery-powered candles lining the mantel are beautiful mixed in with the greenery.

Stockings hung by chimney

“The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that Saint Nick would soon be here…”, stockings are a timeless Christmas mantel decor item, aren’t they?

I enjoy seeing all kinds of stockings, from the chunky knit ones as I used here to handmade, quilted ones.  Don’t forget to add personalized stocking tags like these here!

Basket with pillows and blanket

  1. Add an oversized basket to display and hold blankets and pillows
  2. Place a pre-lit, smaller Christmas tree on one side of the fireplace.
  3. Using real wood for your fires? Stack and display it in a log holder like this one here.
  4. Stack gifts (but keep a clear distance from the actual fireplace).
  5. Utilize Christmas-themed decor (make sure sizing is in proportion with your surround).
