Favorite Christmas Mantels


Every year I watch as all of these fabulous mantels are decorated in these fabulous themes and colors and I am so jealous that I don't have one to decorate. I have even asked my husband if we could get an electric fireplace, not for the heat but for the ability to decorate it for the seasons.   So I have put together some of my favorite holiday mantels

 The First on is from Creative Carmella What I love about this mantel is the traditional feel but with a few vintage pieces and check out her Joy Banner, isn't it cute.  

 This one is from Organized Clutter there is so much I like about this one.  I love the use of the coca cola crate to display ornaments and pine cones.  They painted the bike rim red for a place to put photos and don't you just love the little skis

This one from Comfy Home has a simple and natural feel to it and the Sign really finishes it off well 

How could you not love this one from Four Generations One Roof, The Joy sign using the colorful wreath is fantastic 

What a fantastic mantel is this from The Yellow Cap Cod, how cute are those polka dot and striped stockings with a little bit of leopard print on the top.  My absolutely favorite part though is the reindeer antlers they fit perfectly on the mantel.

While we can't all have a fantastic mantel to hang our stockings on you can do like they did at The DIY Showoff and create a faux mantel. 

I hope you enjoyed my favorite Christmas Mantels.  If you don't have a Fireplace mantel what do you do with your stockings?
