Christmas will be here before you know it and one of the most enjoyable ways to exercise your creativity is by decorating your fireplace mantel. Unlike upgrading ornaments on your Christmas tree or using real greenery for your garlands, styling your mantel for the holiday doesn't have to be nearly as nerve-wracking.

Depending on your style, you can keep it classic with simple red stockings and snow globe cloches, or create a DIY advent calendar. All that's required are a few simple touches and a willingness to experiment with the right decorative accents.

Are you ready to get started and make your fireplace the focal point of your home? Take inspiration from these well-rounded selections of festive Christmas mantel ideas to celebrate the holidays in style.

  1. Christmas Mantel Decor with Snow Globe Cloches

It’s the perfect fit as the cloches look just like giant snow globes! To make these cloches look like large snow globes, buffalo snow was added (not the flake kind but the kind that’s like cotton batten) to the base. Then bottle brush trees are added and pushed the base through the buffalo snow. In some of the cloches, wrapped boxes, red velvet and plaid ribbon were added to them. The last step was wrapping the gifts and trees with LED string lights on wire to get the full Christmas effect. Via So Much Better With Age

  1. Natural winter greenery 

Not only is this the place where stockings will be hung with care, but it’s also the focal point for the room. Bundles of silver dollar eucalyptus, juniper berries, Carolina sapphire cypress and white pine were created and added into the garland rope to build a full and natural design. These were bundled with florist tape and then attached to the cedar with florist wire. Via West Coast Gardens
