As the holiday season draws near, the pressure to host family and friends grows. Whether you have an existing mantel above your fireplace or plan to add a new mantel, it can be an existing feature to decorate for the holidays.
We share our favorite mantel decor ideas perfect for the holidays and all year round.
Winter and Holiday Mantel Decor
The holidays are getting close! Friends and family gather for any and all celebrations as the year comes to an end. Mantels serve as a beautiful shelf and display space above the fireplace. Consider adding a cozy touch to your mantel this holiday with warm colors, candles, and festive greenery.
You can also turn your mantle into a winter wonderland with cool toned snow themed decor and your snow globe collection.
Change out decor for the holidays, or keep it winter themed to last for the whole season! There are endless possibilities to decorate your mantel for this festive time of year.

Spruce Up Your Mantel Decor For Spring
Springtime brings rebirth and growth. Life begins anew, and that can also include the way you decorate your mantel!
Brighten up after winter with fresh flowers and plants placed on the mantel. Consider hanging a painting or artwork above the mantel to celebrate the new season. Art that celebrates nature, particularly pieces filled with greens and brightly colored flowers are excellent for this purpose.
For a fun touch, add elements of decorated eggs or bunnies as Easter approaches.
Add Mantel Colors For Summer Decor
Summer mantel decor can include plants and greenery. A light wood, like wormy maple, makes an excellent box mantel choice in warmer climates. Add different types of plants to create depth, such as a pothos plant whose vines and leaves will hang down, or an aloe plant that stands tall. Succulents paired with bright colors, like yellows and greens, create a vivid display.
Depending on the style of your home and design of your mantel, beach themed pieces can be incorporated. Consider also incorporating summer staples, like artificial citrus fruit in floral bouquets as a unique centerpiece.
Need more room for your plant collection? Add floating shelves on either side of your mantel to hold the rest or additional summer mantel decor.
Festive Fall Mantel Decor Inspirations
Fall is many people’s favorite season and the decor options are endless! Warm colors and tones are common themes during the fall – making a hardwood box mantel perfect for decorating. Walnut and deeper warm wood tones are beautiful during this time of the year or in colder climates. Remember: reds, golds, and browns are all wonderful fall colors that can be accented with white.
Consider taking a trip to your local pumpkin patch to pick out mantel pieces, and add a fall scented candle as a finishing touch. Fake leaves as a garland and fairy lights can tie it all together.
For even more fun, pick out some spooky decorations as Halloween approaches, and switch them out for Thanksgiving.
Remember A Personal Touch
All of these seasonal mantel decoration ideas can be accompanied by personal touches, such as family photos or a family heirloom. Adding a mantel into your home can truly help make it your own.
Having a decor centerpiece that can be used throughout the year saves extra time and effort, and will look stunning in your home!
Add a Hardwood Box Mantel To Your Fireplace
If you don’t have a mantel above your fireplace or want to replace an older mantle or cloak, consider adding a box mantel made from hardwood or reclaimed wood.
Box mantels are easy to install and offer the same benefits as a traditional fireplace mantel. Reach out to our team and tell us about your custom box mantel project.
