We’re so excited for all the holidays coming up! What about you? As a team of creatives, we love looking at color trends and style trends. That’s why, last month, we shared the six top trends for Christmas. And today, we’re talking about the one thing everyone typically decorates this time of year…your mantel! If you need some inspiration, here are some holiday mantel décor ideas from others as well as a few of our own holiday crafts. 

A Little Magic for Your Mantel

When you think about decorating your home for the holidays, your fireplace mantel is probably one of the first things you think about. Our holiday mantel décor trends below include rustic and minimalistic wreaths, garland, trees, framed art, lanterns, and snowflakes & stars. See yourself crafting any of these? We’d love to know which ideas you like the most!
