How can I decorate my fireplace mantel with holiday dÃ©cor? How can I decorate my fireplace mantel with holiday dÃ©cor?
Fireplace mantel décor is even more important in the holidays, because during Christmas the rest of the house is decorated. Using a small amount of sticky tape, tinsel can be used to frame the fireplace. If you have small children, Christmas stockings can be hung on the fireplace on nails or stuck on with sticky tape or stocking hangers. Christmas coincides with winter, making candles very popular. Placing candles on top of the fireplace can look lovely and will scent the room with wonderful fragrances, such as mulled wine and cinnamon. However, you must be careful to not place anything too close to the fire as items could easily be set alight and candles will melt from the heat.
