6 Stunning Christmas Mantel Decoration Ideas to Try This Year

Finally, Christmas is almost upon us. One of my favourite things about Christmas is putting up the Christmas tree and decorating our home! We may have to rethink the tree situation as we have two toddlers who LOVE playing with Christmas decorations, so if anyone has any ideas on how to toddler-proof a Christmas tree, I’m all ears. I spent all day yesterday searching the web for Christmas mantel decoration ideas, so today I thought I’d share some of my favourites with you.

Winter Wonderland Inspired Christmas Mantel Decor

Winter Wonderland Christmas Mantel

This stunning winter wonderland inspired Christmas mantel by Inspired by Charm took my breath away. It’s both simple and extravagant at the same time thanks to the white and silver colour palette. Everything about it is just gorgeous, from the pinecone wreath to the traditional knitted Christmas stockings. I just love it all.

Traditional Nutcracker Christmas Mantel

This stunning Christmas mantel by Craftberry Bush is one of the best I’ve seen. I love the traditional red and gold colour scheme paired with some simple greenery. They haven’t gone overboard but it’s very effective. The warm red and gold colours stand out beautifully against the dark grey walls.

To recreate this look for yourself, all you need is a set of traditional nutcracker soldiers, some brass candlesticks, and a traditional Christmas mantle garland.

Colourful Christmas Mantel Decorations

If you’re a lover of bright colours, you will LOVE this Christmas mantel decor by In My Own Style.

Everything about this is so joyful and fun. I’m a particular fan of the colourful brush Christmas trees, and I love the colourful baubles along the bottom of the mirror!

You can recreate this look at home with some colourful baubles, and the help of a hot glue gun. I tried to find some rainbow bottle brush Christmas trees, but the only ones I could find were crazy expensive. You could always buy these ones from Amazon and spraypaint them yourself though.

Gold and Silver Christmas Mantle Decor
