Warm Up the Fireplace Mantel for the Holidays
Transform your fireplace into a seasonal focal point with eye-catching mantel arrangements and unique stockings.

Decorate your home with a winter wilderness theme for Christmas. Designer Genevieve Gorder opens up the room by setting a large framed mirror on top of the mantel. To achieve her fresh, natural design, cover the mantel with different shades of green moss. Two glitter-covered vases hold arrangements of white branches to create a wintry feel, while small potted evergreens are highlighted with white string lights. For a playful touch, hang a piece of gray cloth with scalloped trim and white felt snowflakes around the perimeter of the mantel. Use the same supplies to make stockings and allow your loved ones to decorate their own with festive felt shapes.
