How to create a fireplace display this Christmas

How your fireplace looks this Christmas is all down to your personal taste.

Adding your stockings, hung via special clips or holders, is a good start – but may still look a bit bare without additional decoration.

However, there are a few tips and tricks to make your display look seasonally festive.

Tips include:

  • Hang a wreath above the centre of your mantelpiece
  • Adorn your mantelpiece with lights or a long, horizontal wreath or garland
  • Add candles – but make sure you do't leave them burning over night
  • Create a figurine display with Christmas favourites such as Rudolph
  • Display your Christmas cards, or hang them along the top of your mantelpiece
  • Hang baubles, that match your tree, along the top of the mantelpiece
