Favorite Christmas Mantel Decor – Garland, Stockings & More

Looking for the best Christmas mantel decor? This post is full of all of my favorite garland, stockings, stocking holders, and more!

It might seem early to some, but it’s really not! Often times holiday decor sells out very quickly, and shipping can be slower this time of year, too. So if you want to start planning your Christmas decorating, this is actually the perfect time to do it! πŸ˜‰

Because of the blog I tend to start planning earlier than I used to. But even though I started early last year, I found lots of things I ordered were either sold out, or backordered so long that they weren’t going to be here in time to use! 

So, this year I’m starting a little earlier and planning on ordering earlier so that doesn’t happen!

Today I’m sharing my favorite Christmas mantel decor, like garland, stockings and stocking holders with you. Hopefully this will get your creative juices flowing, and make it so that you can order things in time to actually use them for Christmas! πŸ˜‰

Last year I finally perfected my technique and had the garland on my mantel looking just the way I’d always wanted! And in today’s post, I’ve sourced the garlands I used above. It’s a combination of my favorite, most realistic garland combined with this eucalyptus one, as well as a few ornaments, picks, and pinecones.

    Hello! I look forward to receiving your emails and look through everything you share, so thank you. I love how you decorated the mantel, especially how the sticking are hung in clusters. Could you share how they were hung? I don’t want to damage my mantel but I want to see if I too can hang my stocking that way. Thank you for your help!

    1. Hi Elle and thank you!! I used command strips and then pushed the garland over them to kind of hide them. They are white so they blend with my white painted mantel pretty well and there’s enough garland to cover them. Hope that helps!

      Thanks for stopping by!
