This Simple Christmas Mantel with Fresh Garland is the pefect way to create a cozy environment for the holiday season for sipping hot chocolate! This post contains affiliate links.
This year has been one of my favorites to decorate for to date! I think not being able to do much last year has really helped me appreciate making our home cozy. I’ve shared a few things so far this year like our Cozy Rustic Christmas Tree, DIY Stovetop Potpourri, an Easy Ornament, an Early Christmas Mantel, a Christmas Wreath, and Free Gift Tag Printables. But today I’m updating my Mantel now that store have some fresh greenery in stock! I hope you can find some inspiration from this Simple Christmas Mantel with Fresh Garland.
I decided to go simple with this mantel and just leave the candlesticks and let the garland shine. Also, I get so many compliments on that basket and people asking where I found it, but it was totally a God given Goodwill find. To be honest I never find anything good at thrift stores, at least not like all the people I see on IG going thrifting. Maybe it’s because I don’t go often enough. But I ran in on a whim looking for something to photograph our fireplace and ran across this beauty! Then I just simply added a White Winter Berry Wreath (similar version linked here) to the basket.
Fresh Garland on Christmas Mantel
I absolutely love Fresh Garland for Christmas. It just brings in a whole new level of cozy in my opinion. But I’ve found you can’t just string hang it on your mantel. I mean you can… but it doesn’t have that full look. Sometimes I like that more sparse vibe, but this year I wanted a full drooping garland. I started off with just a cheap garland and created the shape I wanted. Then I took my Fresh Cedar Garland and deconstructed it and stuck the branches in the cheap version.
Once I had the garland full I added some lights and Berry Stems for some depth. After everything was in place I tied some black satin bows on the corners.
Rustic Christmas Decor
Then I added some birth logs in a basket for some additional texture and a rustic element. Now we have the perfect place to cozy up to in the evenings with the candles lit.
