Christmas Decorations for the Fireplace

Fireplace DécorThe fireplace and its mantel have always been a popular spot for decorations. While we’re not a home design company, we do know a thing or two about décor. We have a few good ideas in mind for Christmas decorations for the fireplace. The decor will bring spirit to the area where your family will be gathered for those chilly December nights.

Fireplace Decorations for Christmas—Our Top 5 Favorites

1. Garlands

Garlands especially look good around masonry consisting of brick or stone. If the mantel consists of either of these material, then wrap a strand of garland that encompasses the entire perimeter.

2. Mix and Match Holiday Accessories

Use a combination of accessories. Place large pillar candles next to a wooden Nutcracker soldier, or a ceramic reindeer adjacent to a snow globe. These items can be placed atop the mantel or at ground level, just to the side of the firebox.

3. Use the Firebox

When it’s not in use, the interior of the firebox provides ample space for decorations. Fill the box with Christmas presents, real or fake. Another option is a pair of hanging Santa legs.

4. Add Lanterns as Focal Pieces

Large vintage lantern boxes are another terrific accessory. Fill the interior with holiday-inspired items, such as mistletoes, a vintage Christmas card, or vintage pocket watch (a nod to The Gift of the Magi).

5. Add Some Beanie Babies

For a cutesy look, add a few Christmas beanie babies. Holiday variants include teddy bears in Santa outfits, Hello Kitty in an elf suit, Pikachu with reindeer antlers, and so on.
