When decorating a mantle for Christmas, keep it simple. Here, I chose gold stocking holders. Instead of christmas lights (of course, you can use those, if you’d like), I opted for candles and made sure that the wick is much much lower than the top of the hurricane or candle votives to avoid the danger of fire. Make sure these are clear glass, no color for simplicity, once again. Layered with clear ‘icicled’ garland. Hmm…I think I just made up a word!
So simple. So effective.
