TWELVE Christmas Mantels to Inspire YOU!

If you have a mantel in your room it is most likely the focal point of the room.

During the holidays we all have visions of a warm fire with stocking hung for Santa to fill up with goodies.

I love a beautiful mantel at Christmas time, and I know I am not alone.

We creative types like to change things up a bit, year after year. It gets harder and harder to find an inspiration that sparks a new idea.

Luckily there are so many wonderful blogs, pinterest and online magazines that inspire us.

Today I am going to do a little line-up of mantels, and hopefully they will inspire you all……

I love the look of a Williamsburg Christmas. I used dried oranges and apples one year on my mantel. Someday I hope to a full-on Williamsburg Christmas look.

This is one of my all time favorites. I love the simplicity of it. I am not a huge burlap lover, so the socks would probably be made out of some other fabric for me, but I love the rustic feel and texture of this mantel.

So peaceful! Sometimes simple is the right answer!!

Now are you ready to go and tackle your mantel?

My mantel is always a challenge since it is 17ft long. Now that is what I call a M-A-N-T-E-L!!
