Cozy Neutral Christmas Fireplace Mantle

Not only is this our first holiday season in our new home, but it’s also our first Christmas with a fireplace + mantle! When we designed our diy fireplace in the spring, we knew we wanted a mantle that we could decorate for Christmas, and I’m so happy we built it into the design!

Our holiday vibe this year is warm and neutral, with lots of greenery, plus some gold and wood accents. I have always loved the look of asymmetrical garland, and I’m really digging how it brightens up the all-white fireplace. To get this look, I started with a battery powered faux garland from Canadian Tire, and then got some fresh cedar branches to make it look more like fresh greenery. I soaked the greenery beforehand so that it would stay fresh, and I mist it every few days so it doesn’t dry up and change colour. I also used command hooks to secure the garland in place on top of the mantle, and along the side.

Along with the greenery, I added some thrifted brass candlestick holders, and a wooden driftwood tree. In the middle I added our Merry Christmas stocking holder that we got from Target a few years ago.

Our fireplace wall is pretty large, so I also wanted to add some holiday elements surrounding the fireplace. We added some cozy blankets on our blanket ladder, and I had this vintage snow shoe that I thought would be perfect for our holiday aesthetic. I decided to add some foraged greenery and some dried orange slices to it for a little pop of colour.

And finally, I found this piece of art for our Samsung Frame TV off of Etsy. I love how it looks like a water colour painting, and it’s such a fun pop of green. I love how it ties the look together.

When we’re sitting on the couch I can’t stop looking at the mantle! It’s just so pretty! It was so much fun to decorate, and I’m really loving the whole vibe we have going on!

Happy Holiday Decorating!!
