  1. No mantel at our home but these are so very beautiful. Thank you for sharing πŸ™‚

    Soft White, Ho Ho Ho and Farmhouse were my favorites!

    Have a beautiful day!

  2. Loved seeing all the mantels Susan! I remember seeing yours last year. We’re so lucky to have magnolia trees in the South that we can use in decorating! I needed a little inspiration as I’m getting ready to put the finishing touches on our mantel today! Have a great day!

  3. What beautiful and inventive mantels! Drooled over each one. Great post Susan. Vikki in VA

  4. Good morning, Susan. Wow, these mantels are gorgeous. I confess that I’ve not yet pulled out the Christmas decorations, but you’ve inspired me to get going. Thank you so much for including the Red & White, Peppermint Stripe Christmas Mantel from Crafts ‘n Coffee.

  5. These are beautiful Christmas mantels! Mine is already done, but this is great inspiration for next year. I love the hunt theme. So adorable!

  6. BNOTP mantel and Cabin on the River are my favorites. All of them are so beautiful!

  7. SharonFromMichigan says

    Susan, thanks for the great inspiration! Perhaps I can “steal” a few ideas! I love this time of year for decorating. The cardinal fireplace screen is lovely!

  8. These are all so lovely! Mine is a little more modern, which I may not do again next year, but I wanted to give it a try!

  9. They are all so beautiful! Now I am looking at mine thinking I need to fluff it up a bit!

  10. Oh my they are all so beautiful! I can keep wishing for one like that…lol

  11. Each so different and so pretty. I would not be able to pick a favorite. Often I see photos where there are one or two that I look at and shake my head thinking ugh, not for me but not this time. I really like every one of them.

    • Thanks, Lori! It took a while to find all these because I was looking for the ones that spoke to me…I love all these, too. I started not to include one of mine from a previous year but it was getting really late and I really wanted 10 for the post. πŸ™‚

  12. Love your mantel, Susan! Jealous of your big ol’ magnolia tree! I want to plant one, but it would never get to grow because I’d just cut it up each Christmas! lol Thanks so much for featuring my mantel! Have a great week!…hugs…Debbie

  13. Oh Susan!! Thank you fro including me in your picks!! Hugs!!

  14. Beautiful mantles, loved the white one. I wish I had a Magnolia tree, love the leaves. Am in the process of decorating the Christmas tree. Many memories in these ornaments.

  15. Gloria in Pgh says

    Susan: Loved all of the mantels but if I had to pick a favorite it would be the lighted nature themed mantel. My mantel is also nature themed and lighted. I have lighted garlands across the top and down to the floor on both sides in which I have placed approximately 40 Old World Christmas clip on bird ornaments. I keep it up all winter. I can almost hear the cheery tweets, chirps and songs from all those lovely birds. It reminds of my mom. She was a back yard bird watcher. She kept a copy of “Birds of North America” next to the window and she would check off the date when she saw a new bird. It was amazing how many different birds she saw over the years!

    Lovely … just magical!

    I loved the mantel at our old house and always had it decorated fully for Christmas. But now we live in one of those houses that has the built in bookshelves on the sides, and the big open area above the fireplace for the t.v.. I still decorate the front of the mantle with garlands, and put a few things on top, but it’s just not the same and I have no idea how to decorate it. Oh well, I’m not complaining because I love my house … but I do love a traditional mantel. πŸ™‚

  17. Love them all! β™₯ β™₯

  18. Lovelies! Our fireplace is built into a stone wall and we have three small mantels. That set up sounded like a good idea at the time. Decorating would be so much easier and fun with just one full length one. I will however, look to these and see if I can make smaller versions.

  19. Thank you so much for this post Susan. Its got my creative juices flowin. I was disappointed tho last year. I took magnolia leaves and greens to put on the mantel and I used the little water holders I bought from Michaels but they turned brown within a few days. Should I have bought the holders from a florist. Love your ideas and tutorials.

  20. All I can say is lovely!

  21. Wow…every single one of them are just BEAUTIFUL!

  22. My mantel is a bit of a challenge because of its size so when and if I come up with an idea, it will be of the less variety. Even though mine can’t be as filled as these, there is inspiration in your selections.

  23. I love the natural mantels with the addition of lights. I’m still working on my mantel as I figure out how to incorporate the kids Christmas decorations into my regular Christmas decorations.

  24. Just the most wonderful mantels ever!! Thanks for sharing…one and all!! franki

  25. I love the mantel from “From My Front POrch To Yours” (I know it’s two froms, but it’s very early morning here), but I wonder how Santa would like to land on a lit fire…

  26. My favorite is yours. Your fireplace itself is totally beautiful and it must be a pleasure to decorate for Christmas. I fell in love with the cardinal fireplace screen the first time I saw it and I have been looking for one like. I have not had any luck on finding one yet.

  27. Thank you for the feature! I love so many of those that you’ve shown. I’m already plotting my ideas for this year!! Loved your mantel last year and the Cabin on the River Christmas mantel- that speaks to me!! Hugs, Liz

  28. Wish I could share mine. It rivals many of these. Love Christmas!
