Is there anything cozier than a fireplace during Christmas time? These Christmas fireplace decor ideas are the perfect way to accent the heart of your home with some yuletide cheer.
If you are lucky enough to have a fireplace or use a faux version, decorating the fireplace for Christmas is a must! No matter what your style is, traditional, colorful, minimalist, farmhouse, etc. there are dozens of beautiful ways you can make your fireplace stand out during the holidays!
How can you decorate your fireplace for Christmas?
- Remove everyday decor. Nothing will make a space overwhelming than pilling holiday decor on top of everyday pieces.
- Hang a statement piece. Unless your TV is above the fireplace, you usually have a spot to make a statement. You could hang Christmas art, cheerful sayings, elegant mirrors, and even faux deer antlers to draw in the focus.
- Add symmetry. Symmetry doesn’t necessarily mean identical pieces on either side, which can also look good too. But it means if you are hanging heavy garland on one corner, balance out the other end with hanging stockings or tall candlesticks to even out both sides.
- Illuminate. Adding lights & candles can create that cozy Christmas vibe in no time.
- Garland. Nothing makes a fireplace more Christmassy than garland. From thick and green to thin decorative beads, garland is a must for your fireplace.
- Set a scene. Adding decor like lanterns, wrapped presents, or vintage pieces like snow shoes, create these mini-scenes at the base of your fireplace that really elevates the entire look.
