creative ways to decorate your fireplace

With the holiday season in full swing, it’s time to get into the holiday spirit. One of the best ways to do that is with stunning holiday fireplace decorations. Whether you create a snow scene or hang stocking or a giant wreath with lights, your fireplace decorations can blow people away. Your fireplace is already the center of any room, so why not make it pop even more?

The hardest part is coming up with ideas for fireplace decorations. Sometimes you want to take an existing idea and go all out with it or do something completely original. Whatever the case may be, we want your decorations to be better than ever this year. Check out these creative ways to decorate your fireplace.

Simple Black and White

You don’t have to go overboard with your fireplace decorations. Sometimes all you need is a nice pattern. This black and white decor with fresh evergreens on the mantel present an atmosphere of simplicity and sophistication. Another benefit is that this design works with just about every fireplace.

Winter Wonderland

Do you use your fireplace very often? If not, you can use the opening to create a beautiful scene. With white and silver decorations accompanied by snow covered trees and two emerging white deer, your fireplace can look like something out of a storybook. Just don’t forget to add the squirrel and pine cones to your collage for a truly natural feel.

Candle Collage

You can have gorgeous fireplace decorations without spending too much money. All you really need are candles. Collect about twenty or so and arrange them on top of the mantel. For added effect, you can drape some artificial foliage around the sides. Just make sure they’re not too close to the open flames of your candles or the fireplace itself.

Snow Village

Let your creativity run wild and create an adorable snow village on top of your fireplace. Complete with little houses and miniature trees, your village will put a smile on anyone’s face who sees it. You can even find small figurines of people to populate your village. With all the right ingredients, you can create a bustling town beautifully preserved in time that you can enjoy every time you walk by. Honestly though, half the fun is in putting it together.

Gingerbread Galore

If you feel like going all out this year, why not add a gingerbread theme to it? Their adorable designs will put a smile on anyone’s face, and you can even adopt the snow village idea too. Simply use gingerbread houses instead. You can make even more complex structures like gingerbread trains if you really want to get creative with it. Just be careful not to surround your fireplace too closely if you plan on lighting a fire. This design works best when the fireplace is just for decoration.
