Snowflakes, mini Christmas trees, pinecones, birch wood — this mantel is full of nature-inspired decor. The best part: this look could carry you through winter, just take down the Christmas stockings.
Don’t feel guilty if traditional Christmas decorations aren’t your style. Spruce up your mantel with dried citrus garland, which can stay on all winter long.
If you’ve always been obsessed with the Christmas village scenes you’ve seen in movies, bring a dose of that charm right into your living room with mini houses in different sizes and colors.
Cozy With Candles
For a warm winter feel, create a monochromatic display of candles with various heights and sizes. Layer in sprigs of greenery and neutral stockings with rustic ribbons.
Secure a garland to your mantel with adhesive hooks, and warm up the space with bright red stockings. Tip: dress up store-bought stockings by gluing ball fringe or ribbon.
