One of the most traditional ways in which to decorate the mantel is with greenery.  Garlands of evergreens with other natural elements such as pine cones and winter berries create a festive display above the hearth.  Fruit can also be used to add color and interest to the mantel.

Create a winter wonderland with frosty ornaments and snow globes.  Get creative with glass canisters and jars filled with snow and ornaments.  Adhere snowflakes to garland and drape it across the mantel.  Add candles in glass and reflective holders to cast a warm glow and create sparkle.

Go simple and elegant with peacock feathers and silver accents.  Place a grouping of winter-blooming flowers such as poinsettia and amaryllis on the mantel.  Accent these with gift-wrapped boxes and ribbons.

If you have a favorite holiday collection, display it on the mantel.  Display one large grouping across the mantel at varying heights or a smaller grouping paired with greenery.  A collection of snowmen paired with decorative trees or greenery draped among nutcrackers make displays that are full and festive.

Stockings are a favorite at the fireplace.  Hang unique or personalized stockings stuffed with candy canes, gift-wrapped boxes and greenery.  Hang across the mantel or group asymmetrically for a modern look.

Ornaments are not just for the tree.  Place them within garland and greenery for a pop of color and added dimension.  Display ornaments in a grouping of glass jars.  Hang ornaments from garland at varying lengths to create a lively display.
