The top part of the fireplace where we usually place our clocks, maybe family pictures, some vases or candles or even plants. Mantels not only add chic to your apartment but also go ahead and speak volumes about your creativity.We adore a well-styled and accessorized fireplace mantle. The more layers, the charming the finished product. One of my favorite mantel decorating ideas is to layer varying sizes of framed or unframed art decoratively on the mantle. You don’t always have to hang. If you do, don’t hang frames too high. Just a few inches above the mantel is the ideal height. Another fireplace mantel prettifying tip is to hang numerous sizes and shapes of mirrors instead of just one. Apart from that, there are numerous fireplace and mantle decorating festive ideas that you can use too. Its always wise too take good care of your fireplace with your creativity. Your outdoor porch mantel deserves your love too!

clear plastic ornaments that you fill with strips of metallic gold foil and large circular chalkboard ornaments. If you can’t find any chalkboard ornaments, you can always make your own by applying green chalkboard paint to wood or cardboard. Remove ornaments before using the fireplace and rehang them when you’re finished.
