Fuzzy socks, creamy hot cocoa, and crackling fireplaces are the three essential ingredients to a warm Christmas season. Fireplaces in particular have a long history with the holiday — they’re featured in many popular Christmas songs, are what Santa Claus slides down, and (most importantly) are super fun to decorate! From fluffy green garlands to dazzling lights — and, of course, stockings hanging proudly — decorating your fireplace and mantle is one of the fastest ways to get in the holiday spirit. Since we all need a little extra joy in our lives right now (thanks, 2020), we scoured Instagram to find the prettiest, most sparkly, holly jolliest fireplace Christmas décor ideas. Lights, ribbons, buffalo plaid, green and white colour schemes, wooden décor, jingle bells, Christmas houses, and more will give you plenty of options to choose from. Ooh and ahh over these beautiful fireplaces, ahead, then go home and start decorating!
