Fireplace is one of the most suitable places for installing Christmas decorations and all type of items and details that contribute to the great and holy spirit at 24th of December and the days before and after.
Since the fireplace mantel provides amazing opportunities, I have collected some really fine ideas that you can apply at your home. In order to achieve the best effect of the holiday decoration I will recommend that you place your tree near the fireplace. This way you will be able to combine the two functional areas into one visual part that you can decorate with a garland, for example. Actually, a Christmas fireplace garland can be quite creative, since they can be made out of various materials. .

One of the ideas that I like is to make garlands out of Christmas socks. You can find them in your local crafts store and buy, let’s say 4 pieces. Then, you can use a plastic string and attach the socks and voila! You will have an amazing handmade garland for Christmas. Other examples show strings with Christmas balls, which is another fantastic way for decoration.
Your other options include Christmas lights. They can be wrapped around the garlands and you will achieve an amazing effect, especially at night. Imagine sitting on the couch, a glass of fine red wine in your hand and the fireplace in front of you. And on the mantel the little shining lights coming from the garland. The room’s lights turned off and the atmosphere full of Christmas spirit. This moments are precious!
Additionally, to your decorations and Christmas fireplace garland you can place a Christmas wreath. I like them because they are simple, natural and good looking. Also they can contribute to the entire holiday mood in your home.
