Decorating the fireplace mantle is a holiday tradition for many families. With The Amazing Flameless Candle you can achieve a variety of beautiful, festive – and safe – displays.
For the holidays, we definitely subscribe to ‘the more, the merrier’ design philosophy. We like to set our favorite yuletide bric-à-brac atop the mantel and shine a light upon it. Take your nutcracker collection, for instance: Line or stagger them on the mantel and place two tea light flameless candles at the foot of each. Same goes for your snowmen or reindeer. Our candles bring warmth, dimension and attention to your beloved holiday pieces.
A classic seasonal look for the fireplace is garland on the mantel, awash in candlelight. We love the sublime scent of real fir, cedar, eucalyptus, holly or magnolia, but there is fantastic looking faux greenery that also does the trick. Place your garland on the mantel so that it drapes evenly on either side of the fireplace. To keep the garland in place, stagger 7 to 10 pillar and votive flameless candles atop the mantle. Snake the garland around the candles so that it is comfortably wedged among them. Set daily timers for the candles so that they light automatically at dusk and turn off automatically 4, 6 or 8 hours later. Dot the available space on the mantel with additional holiday flair if desired.
Use caution if lighting a fire in the fireplace, as greenery is flammable. We suggest our flameless candles inside the fireplace instead. Place candles of varying size within the fireplace using cake stands, wooden stumps, individual stands or candelabra to position them at different heights, adding more candles to maximize a hearth’s flickering effect. Set the automatic timers on the candles within the fireplace so that they are in sync with those on mantel.
Voilà ! The Amazing Flameless Candle brings clever, cozy decorating solutions to your fireplace for the holiday. Have other creative ideas for using flameless candles for your fireplace this holiday? Share them with us on Facebook or by commenting below. Happy holidays!
