Christmas Mantel Ideas

As I started to decorate my mantel for Christmas I found myself stumped. I have so many ideas and items that I want to use that I can't make a decision. In my book less is more. I don't want something crazy going on with too much competing for eye space. So after looking online for some ideas I found 48 ideas from Midwestern Living. Check them out on their website at

I've attached my favorites here. Hopefully I can use some of these to make up my mind. As much as I would love spend oodles of money on Christmas decor that is not in the cards so I love the idea of using what you already have to make it new/different then the year before. Hope you find some inspiration for your home. Many of these could be used on kitchen tables, mantels, entry tables, dresser tops.
