Go Evergreens

Making evergreen garlands is a great idea to try, they are very comfy to line up the mantel, such garlands can be accessorized with pinecones, ornaments and lights to make them cooler. Small evergreen trees are also a cool idea for a mantel, put a couple on one or both sides and you’ll get a festive feel at once. Even undecorated trees and garlands look cool and holiday-like, sometimes some evergreens and candles are everything that you need to create a fantastic Christmas mantel.

Add Some Stockings

Stockings used to be an indispensable part of Christmas decor but then they were not very popular, and now they are making a huge comeback. If you want to add a fun and relaxing touch to the decor, there’s nothing better than some stockings, and they can be taken in different shades – neutrals, monochromatic, black and white, or different materials like burlap or faux fur. Hang some on the mantel and you’ll see the holiday cheer at once.
