From ‘BHG’, this mantel shows us that you don’t have to use pine or fir to create a wonderland of greenery. Any green material that is local to you can be used to create holiday spirit on your Christmas mantel.



From ‘House to Home‘, this classic Christmas mantel is simple and easy… snowflakes, lettering, fray lights and a touch of greens…



This twinkle light canvas from Liz at ‘Love Grows Wild’, is an easy DIY Christmas mantel idea that can be the focal point of your whole holiday decorating scheme!



This Christmas mantel is full of easy ideas from Jessica at ‘Four Generations, One Roof‘. This post has tons of holiday ideas from her holiday home tour, and definitely worth checking out her whole home!

I just love this holiday mantel idea! This comfort and joy mantel by ‘LandeeLu” is elegant, simple and eye catching. My fav part? She took a can of gold spray paint and had some fun with it, LOVE the gold painted light strings! Lot’s of photos!
