Decorating the mantel for Christmas is simple with prelit wreaths. Convenient and professional-looking, prelit wreaths come with lights interweaved in the greenery and tips. With the glow of the lights, the holiday mantel decor can be enjoyed in the daytime and evening. Choose between LED or incandescent lights with the options of white, clear and multicolored bulbs. Match the lights of the wreath with the nearby artificial tree to give the room a stunning, unified appearance.

The wreath remains one of the most popular mantel decorations for Christmas. Premium unlit wreaths feature artificial tips and branches molded after the look of live trees to create a natural look. For example, the tips of the Fraser Fir wreath are constructed so that they can be easily shaped into a side swept motion, resembling the look of Fraser Fir trees. After you have selected your wreath, delicately accent it's green branches with a bright red bow or add a few favorite Christmas collectibles and candles to the mantel to create a one of a kind holiday mantelscape.

Mantel Decorating Tips With Garland

Draping Christmas Garland for Fireplace

A unique and often less practice technique in hanging garland is to drape artificial garland at even lengths, instead of laying it straight across the mantel. This style of hanging garland leaves plenty of room for displaying other holiday mantel decorations. One fresh idea to decorate the mantel is to place solid colored ornaments in a variety of clear glasses or vases. The Crimson Harvest decorative garland looks festive and cheerful with red poinsettias, berries and ornaments in the greenery.

Decorative Garland with Rustic Style

Incorporate decorative garland, such as the Aspen Silver or Floral Poinsettia, into Christmas mantel ideas to add contrast and style. Rustic Aspen Silver garland is elaborate with lush white poinsettias and bundles of silver and gold ornaments. For a beautiful backdrop to the garland, hang the matching Aspen Silver wreath above the mantel. Decorative garlands are 9' in length, allowing extra length to be draped on the sides or corners of the mantel.

Thinner Artificial Garland Accents

Incorporating a thin garland, such as the Norway Spruce, into your mantel display is a great way to add a fresh pop of greenery to the hearth for Christmas while still allowing you to display Christmas keepsakes, ornaments and decorations. Prelit garland creates a glow around ornaments when nestled into the greenery and unlit garland looks classic adorned with a few red bows.
