Christmas Mantel Decorating Ideas with Wreaths

Brighton Fir Wreath with Lit Ribbon: Give the holiday mantel decorations an embellished look with the prelit Brighton Fir artificial wreath trimmed with LED ribbon lighting. Flexible LED ribbon is battery operated, giving extra illumination to the wreath and tree without any added plugs. The structured ribbon easily shapes throughout the greenery. Hesitant of decorating the wreath yourself? Select among our pre-decorative wreaths, professionally designed with ribbon, flowers and ornaments. Many decorative wreath styles, along with matching garland, teardrops and tabletop trees, are available to complement any home's decor.

Festive LED Prelit Wreaths: 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 look.

Artificial Wreath with a Simple Bow Concept: The wreath remains one of the most popular mantel decorations for Christmas. Premium unlit wreaths look natural and merry with its artificial tips and branches molded after the look of live trees. 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. For a wreath that looks full and plush, hang the Sequoia wreath, known for its extra thick branches and needle tips. Hang a traditional red bow to accent the wreath. Add a few favorite Christmas collectibles and candles to the mantel for a holiday mantelscape.

Mantel Decorating Tips with Garland

Decorating in the Yard

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.

Draping Christmas Garland for Fireplace: One option 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.

Thinner Artificial Garland Accents: Use thinner artificial garland, such as the Norway Spruce, to deck the fireplace while allowing space for other decorations. Candles, bows and stockings can be displayed on the mantel, while the trimming garland gives a cohesive look. All of our artificial garlands are premium grade, so it is just a matter of preference and style which garland is selected. For a muted look that highlights surrounding decorations, incorporate unlit garland.

Hang Christmas Stockings on the Mantel: Hanging stockings on the mantel endures as a favorite holiday tradition, adding another fun dynamic to gift giving. When selecting stockings, look for qualities that make them unique in design, such as tinsel trim, hand stitched designs and pom poms dangling on the side. Choose stockings with vivacious Christmas themes such as Santa, snowflakes and Christmas trees. Bring joy to the home by decorating the fireplace for Christmas with stockings; hanging one for each family member. Even pets would appreciate their own stocking filled with treats.

Whimsical Stocking Holders: Stocking holders give a classy look to the mantel, while holding the stockings. Instead of using damaging screws or nails on the mantel, use bedazzling stocking holders instead. From whimsical Santa fairies to prancing reindeer sets, stocking holders paired with festive stockings make the mantel look dazzling and sophisticated.

Frosted Hurrice Candle Holders in Style: Dress the mantel with Christmas candles placed in candle holders to add brightness and holiday cheer. Use glass hurricane candle holders to stylishly display candles. To celebrate Advent, place pink and purple taper candles in hearty wreath candle holders for a gorgeous layout. Decorate the mantel with LED flameless scented candles to enjoy for the holidays and year-round. Whichever candles are used, create an aurora of peace and serenity in any room with candles and candle holders.

Battery Operated Christmas Lights on the Mantel: Battery operated lights are a top choice for decorators who need the freedom to decorate without electrical outlets. They deliver superior illumination without needing a plug. Choose between incandescent mini lights, LED fairy lights, and LED mini lights. Energy efficient LED technology reduces the power draw, meaning you save money on batteries. Weave these lights through garlands or wreaths. Place them around nutcrackers, nativity scenes, advent calendars, or other decorations to add illumination to the mantel.
