Traditional Christmas decor is all about reds, greens and whites but what if you don’t want that all colorful cheer? No worries, there are many more styles and ideas to try for winter holidays, and today I’d like to share some fresh and interesting ways to style your mantel for Christmas, and I promise, you won’t see anything tasteless or too colorful here!

Go Evergreens

Evergreens are symbolic for Christmas, and using them for decorating a Christmas mantel is a great idea, whether they are faux or natural ones. 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.

Stick To The Style Of The Space

Don’t forget that your mantel decor should somehow coordinate with the rest of decor around, so add the touches of the style you have here. If it’s a vintage-styled room, why not add lace and vignettes? If you have a glam space, go gilded vases and candle holders and add shiny touches, and slight rustic touches can fit most of decor styles except for the most refined ones. Look at the ideas below and choose!
