A wreath is an essential Christmas mantel decoration. There are countless style options for Christmas wreaths, so you can achieve any look you want. Hang a plain wreath for a classic, charming look, or decorate it with colorful ornaments and lights for something more eye-catching.
Keep your mantel from looking too busy by using a handful of decorative pieces for weight. A pair of country-style Christmas trees can provide an attractive contrast to metallic statues or candlesticks while still creating a cohesive look.
Pine cones, garland, and other natural decorations help fill empty space and add extra texture to create a perfectly accented wreath. Christmas stockings hung below the mantel are a beloved seasonal must-have. Use decorative stocking holders to fill the empty spaces on the mantel, or stick with more subtle options to let the stockings steal the show.
