The mantle is my favorite part about Christmas decorating! Maybe because it's such a focal point for most houses. Or because it frames the fireplace, which is where you want to be during the winter time, and especially Christmas. Here are some mantles that have caught my eye this year:
Love the greenery on this mantle with the pops of red, and the lanterns are perfection!
These silver hanging glittery stars are so fun! I really like the white stockings against the lit fireplace.
The logs in this fireplace are amazing, and i love the peace garland!
The simplicity of this one works very well with the awesome Santa portrait!
I love decorating with pine cones, so i was naturally drawn to this one! The natural colors are awesome, and with just subtle hints of Christmas, this could stay up all winter long.
These bright red wreaths really pop on this mantle, and I really like the spacing of the hanging stockings.
This one is a little overkill, but kind of fun! I wonder how long that took to make, and how the heck do you store that??

Here are a couple pics of our mantle. Brooke made the burlap stockings from the burlap we used for our Friendsgiving dinner! (tutorial to come soon!)
The PEACE stocking hangers we got last year from Hobby Lobby, of course! And the pre-lit garland is from Target.
What's your mantle style??
