Holiday Mantle Ideas

6 years ago
last modified: 6 years ago

We have an octagonal LR that is glass on 5 of the 8 sides. Our main Christmas tree is usually in that room.

The fireplace in there is quite large. The mantle is 8' across, and it is also high (maybe 5'5 feet). The mantle is also deep ... 2 feet or more.

It swallows up whatever I throw at it (see below). The last few years I have been doing a very large and low swag of assorted greenery, but to get the look I want I need more than just evergreen and it just doesn't last.

What about putting a bunch of mini trees up there? WWYD. One rule - nothing red.
