It's a tradition that I love! On goes the Christmas music, down comes the decoration boxes and away we go. My kiddos even put on their warm pj's and turned on the fireplace!
Today's Task: Decorate the mantel/fireplace!
If you include these three common elements then most of your work of decorating a Christmas Mantel will be complete!
•Wreath – Hang one over a picture or mirror already on the wall.
•Garland – Woven along the mantel garland instantly says Christmas.
•Stockings – It would not be Christmas without stockings hanging on the fireplace.
With these basics in place, all that is needed is to find pieces that match the holiday decorating style of the home and fill in with other objects that enhance the look.
Don't know how to hang that garland? Here is a tutorial .
