Decorating your mantel is one of the simplest ways to get your home ready for the holidays. In my video tutorial below, I share three ways to style your mantel for Christmas using DIY projects and other home décor. I also share some decorating tips, including how to hang your garland, how to combine certain colors to create a calm and cozy vibe, and how to create different looks.

If you don’t have a fireplace mantel, you could always add these holiday decorations to a cube organizer, bookcase, or shelf in your living room. Either way, I would love to see how you use these DIY ideas to decorate your home! So make sure to tag me in your Instagram photos or use the hashtag #MadeWithLia

We’ll be sharing new holiday projects along with old favorites on our social channels, too, if you want more home décor ideas. You can find daily inspiration on our Instagram, Facebook, or Pinterest. Or browse our YouTube channel for more video tutorials. Happy decorating! ~ Lia and team
