Behold, the Perfect Wintery Holiday Mantel Ideas


Whether you're celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah or staying in non-denominational territory this year, the interwebs are abounding with gorgeous winter holiday mantel decorating ideas that transverse across these celebrations—and ones we just had to translate with our lovely moodboard builder. We adore this offering of refreshing sources of inspiration for decking out the one space that begs to be decor-laden—with wintery whites and holiday greens and blues, and even some pink (yes, pink!). As 'tis the season for mantel decorating, here are some ideas for everyone to spice up their homes as well as their eggnog, and how to get their look:


We love the crisp, fresh look of this wintery scene decked with a holiday horn and fresh greenery.

pops of color

White with pops of red is the perfect designer-y way to create a fresh look for your mantel. (The stacked wood is also a nice touch!)

little details

But what could be more relaxing on a cold night indoors than candles and a string of pretty bells? We like the organized chaos going on in this scene.

the freshest

Gravitating toward winter flora is a lovely and fresh decorating scheme that works well, we imagine, to making the house smell wintery as well. The mirror is a nice touch to this scheme as well, or any silver accents in general.

simple white

For a cabin retreat this holiday season, we love the fresh look of simply white stockings and little else. Using an antler to hang stockings is genius territory as well.

merry & bright

Gold, navy, greens, and...bright pink! We can't believe we didn't think of this ourselves. This is how to do winter mantel decorating (b)right.

light & pretty

Gold and light blue with soft candles works wonders as a mantel decorating scheme—and a snowflake garland adds the perfect touch.


Get a vintage-y look by layering shimmery garlands, thrifted mirrors and candlestick holders on your mantel. We love the final, simple result.

the diy version

Don't have much extra room for decor this year? We found a DIY option that uses just construction paper (!) and other craft supplies to create a Dr. Suess-esque wonderland. (And if you do go this route, we would love to see it—give us a shout out at #adoredecor!)
