Mantel is one of the most popular decorated areas of a home for Christmas. Mantle is not only where you will hang your stockings, it is also the perfect place to set decorative items.
Being the center focus of the living or family room, having an inviting and festive mantle will definitely add charms to your home for Christmas.
Let me share with you how you can decorate an easy farmhouse Christmas mantel.
1. Use Wooden Plank Wall Decor To Decorate Your Mantel
To create a farmhouse Christmas looking mantle, you may want to bring out some distressed wood frames or wooden plank wall decor items.
Distressed wood really adds a farmhouse rustic look to your mantle where the rest of your Christmas decor can be white, silver, and organic colors.

3. Create a Village on the Mantle To Decorate Your Mantel
Many people create a Christmas village and put it on a table, but why not put it right on your mantle?
It keeps it high enough to be away from kids or cats who are a little too curious, as well as being in a room where your family probably spends a lot of time during the holidays.
Not only that, it is a convenient place to spread around twinkle lights and plug them in, allowing you to easily illuminate your farmhouse village.

4. Use Vintage Items on the Mantle
For more traditional decorating of the mantle, you might want to use various decorative accessories and figurines. For a farmhouse look, try to find items that are vintage or at least have that old-fashioned look to them.
Some items that work perfectly include an old pair of white ice skates, vintage milk jugs and bottles, or Santa Clause figures that have the old dress as opposed to the bright red dress and hat of the more modern styles.

5. Add Sparkling Christmas Garland And Pine Cone Trees
Sparking pine cone trees are really popular during Christmas since they are inexpensive and always add a charming element.
However, instead of the bold green ones, you can either get them in white or add some sparkles to the pine cone trees.
Add a matching sparkling garland and spread them around your mantle in between other decorative items.
There you have a beautiful and magical farmhouse looking Christmas mantel.
