12 Festive Christmas Mantel Decoration Ideas

1. Don’t be too literal.

Every inch of your mantel doesn’t have to be decked out in Santa and reindeer. Try limiting the literal holiday decor to stockings and a garland, with the accents standing on top of the mantle being evergreen.

2. Embrace minimalism.

A simple Christmas tree garland and matchy-matchy stockings are refreshingly minimalistic. It’s totally possible to keep with the theme of your home while still decorating for the holidays.

Our outdoor floor cushions are the super comfy and style-forward option for the boho side of us all. They’re UV coated to protect against fading and water-resistant so you can avoid scrambling to bring them inside whenever there’s a touch of weather. Grab a few to have on hand whenever seating is hard to come by or for a fun option for kids to use out in the yard.

3. Impress with fresh greenery.

Nothing looks — and smells — quite as nice as a real garland and wreath. Go all out for a holiday party, or even just Christmas Eve with the family, with this look.

4. Fresh flowers are gorgeous and unexpected.

On a similar note, a fresh flower garland is stunning for a special event. Although Christmas and flowers are totally unrelated, somehow this look just works.

Our customers tell us ALL the time how soft and warm our Throw Blankets are (the secret: Sherpa fleece). Even better, they get softer the more you wash them. They’re a perfect addition to any living room couch. Featuring a crisp, vivid design on the front with a reverse white side.

5. Go for an eclectic look.

As long as there’s some sort of color scheme, topping your mantel with all kinds of knickknacks is such a cool look.

As experts in the field of sitting down, we thoughtfully crafted our Floor Pillows to be overstuffed, plush, and firm. These cushions never lose their shape, and the high-quality print makes sure the design stays crisp and colorful.

6. Light taper candles.

Christmas and candles are practically synonymous, so don’t forget to light a few!

7. Try out a color theme.

Pine green works great for a Christmas mantel decoration, for example.

Our outdoor floor cushions are the super comfy and style-forward option for the boho side of us all. They’re UV coated to protect against fading and water-resistant so you can avoid scrambling to bring them inside whenever there’s a touch of weather. Grab a few to have on hand whenever seating is hard to come by or for a fun option for kids to use out in the yard.

8. Let frosty, winter artwork shine.

Allow a winter landscape to be your mantel’s centerpiece. Beautiful.

9. Create a garland out of the holiday cards you receive.

Sentimental, stylish, and super affordable.

Our Stationery Cards feature designs from talented Artists – a major upgrade from the cheesy, generic stuff at the store. Send unique greetings, stock up on seasonal cards, or just pick something funny and witty to brighten somebody’s day.

10. Hang ornaments at varying lengths.

This is another high impact option that comes in at a low cost.

Add throw pillows to whatever room needs an extra dose of comfy. Filled with a fluffy faux down insert, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style. Available in four sizes and all measurements are made without pillow insert.

11. Go cactus crazy.

Live in a warmer climate? Cacti may seem a bit more natural to utilize as holiday decor than pines. Very desert chic.

12. Snowball pom-pom garlands are adorable.
