When I was a little girl, one of my favorite things to do right before Christmas was to watch Barbie and the Nutcracker about 3 to 5 times because it always set me in that festive mood. I would still watch it now to be honest. These nutcracker decorations displayed by the mantel send me back to those times, and I would personally love to get some for my parents’ fireplace at their farmhouse. What do you think?

For an even more cozy rustic atmosphere, you can dim the lights in the room with the fireplace, and bet your lighting only on string lights and candles. Decorate the mantel with lights in red and different baubles, hang stockings and if you want to add some elegance, display candleholders in gold with red candles. Hang a wreath over the mantel, and display candles on the floor, but be careful not to spill any of the wax.
