5 Best Christmas Decorations for Fireplace Mantel – The holidays are a time for family and friends to gather round the fireplace and share good times.

From stocking stuffers to Christmas stockings, this list of decoration ideas will make your mantel the most festive place in the house!

Ornament Tree

If you’re looking to get a little more creative with your mantel, this is the way to go.

An ornament tree can be as simple as an arrangement of ornaments hanging on the fireplace mantel, or it can be more elaborate (and even bigger!) if you want to get fancy.

You can make one yourself by buying some moss and decorating it with pretty Christmas ornaments.

If that sounds like too much work for you, just buy one off Amazon instead—all kinds of options are available from different companies at affordable prices!

Ribbon Garland

Ribbon garland is a great way to decorate your fireplace mantel. It’s easy to make, and you can make it in lots of different colors and lengths.

Red and White Stockings

Stockings are a tried-and-true Christmas decoration. They can be hung on the mantel, or even draped over the fireplace itself!

Stockings have been featured in many classic movies, including “Miracle on 34th Street” and “It’s A Wonderful Life.”

You can fill your family’s stockings with holiday treats like chocolates or oranges. Or you can use them to hang other decorations that feature your family’s names and the year.

If you want to make a custom stocking, you can purchase felt from your local craft store and decorate it however you want! Try adding glitter glue for sparkle, sequins for glamour or paint for elegance.

Holiday Fireplace Mantel Wreath

The holidays are a time to celebrate the season, and what better way to do so than with a festive fireplace mantel? I made my own wreath using pinecones, berries and pine branches.

For those of you who don’t have access to an abundance of pinecones or fresh greenery (or even if you do), try using fake greenery instead!

The beauty is that there aren’t any wrong ways to decorate your fireplace mantel—as long as you have fun doing it!

  • Use red and green Christmas ribbon on top of white snowflakes for an extra festive touch. This will also make your home smell like Christmas even more!
  • Hang some stockings up for Santa Claus before he arrives on Christmas Eve night. These stockings were purchased at Dollar Tree last year but they come in various styles—you could even make them yourself out of felt if necessary!

Cuttings Tree

This is a simple project that can be completed in about an hour, and it will look great for years to come.

You’ll need some branches of the same size and length (you want them to all be roughly the same height), florist wire, and some green floral tape.


The holidays are a time to spend with family and friends, and what better way to do that than by decorating your fireplace mantel?

You can use any of these ideas or create something completely original. The important thing is that you have fun doing it!
