I love this vintage style tinsel garland.

It is filled with holiday sparkle, gold ornaments, pinecones, string lights and Christmas ribbon.

Here are some tips for creating a vintage tinsel mantle:

  • Choose your tinsel. Vintage tinsel is available in a variety of colors and styles, so you can find the perfect one to match your décor. You can also use evergreen garland, faux garland or plenty of greenery instead of the tinsel garland.
  • Gather your supplies. In addition to tinsel, you can also add garland, stockings, natural elements, tree decorations and white candles, ornaments, and other decorations. You may also want to use candles or lights to add extra sparkle and shine. Floral wire, command hooks,are essential for hanging your garland on the fireplace mantel.
  • Arrange your tinsel. The most popular way to arrange tinsel for a mantle is to hang a swag. To do this, simply drape the tinsel over the mantle and let it hang down on either side.
  • Add your other decorations. Once you’ve arranged your tinsel garland, it’s time to add your other decorations. Hang stockings from the mantle, place ornaments on the tinsel, and add candles or lights. You can also add other festive items, such as a nutcracker or a Santa Claus figurine. Vintage ornaments, knit stockings, bottlebrush trees, glass ornaments and plaid ribbon for a pop of color.
