If you have a mantel, chances are you want to decorate it for the holidays. However, traditional garlands can get boring, and there are other dazzling options. Use your imagination and create a decorative garland that will make a statement and provide a centrepiece for a beautifully decorated room.

Traditional With a "Twist"

If you want to use a more classic garland made out of greenery, liven it up a little bit. Tie big red velvet bows along the garland and hang shiny ornaments from it. You can wind a beautiful gold ribbon through the swag to add some sparkle. Place small teddy bears or other stuffed toys in between the swags for a cute touch.

Beads and Baubles

Use long strands of beads in place of greenery for an updated look for your mantel. Mix red and green or gold and silver beads and drape them so they hang down elegantly in loops. Tuck poinsettia flowers on the mantel underneath the beads to add interest.

Food Ideas

Bring back some old-fashioned charm with a popcorn and cranberry garland for the mantel. Another funky idea is to use ribbons and tie candy canes, gingerbread cookies and other goodies on to one long, thick ribbon and drape the goodies across the mantel.
