Create a visual triangle.
Using this design rule will give you the perfect place to start. It will also give your mantle depth and help guide the viewer's eye. Start with a main focal point. This will be the "anchor" for the mantle. This can be anything- a mirror, piece of art, etc.

Shop your own home!
You don't have to break the bank to redecorate your mantel. Before heading to the store, gather objects from different rooms in your home that you think could work. During the holidays, you can take out your Christmas decorations and use them! Just make sure you keep your "theme" in mind.

Move things around until the magic happens.
Once you have all of the objects you plan to use to decorate your mantel, the best thing to do is to put them all up there and move them around. Make sure that you take a step back and look at it from different parts of the room. If something seems off, move it around and try again until you are happy with it. Be patient! It may take a little bit of tweaking but that's part of the process.
