  Some people ask is there a proper way to put it on the mantle ? 

The answer is “Yes”  there is ! Some people think you thumbtack them to the front of the mantle, well, that is a definite “NO, NO“. You will be calling the fire company before the night is over. You actually lay it on top of the mantle shelf, and gently slide it towards the back, next to the wall, and it should hang down over the front of the mantle no more than 9” . You can have a drop on each end of it, or none at all, it depends on your liking. Some people will cover it end to end, like shown in the picture below, with a drop on each end. Others will center it on the mantle with no end drop. The REMOVE BEFORE LIGHTING FIREPLACE so you don’t end calling your local fire department because you didn’t use it properly remove.


At Linens Art and Things, we have beautifully designed easy care, mantle scarves that can be used for any size fireplace, from mobile home size to the massive fireplaces in a ski lodge. Remember, it’s not the size of the fireplace, it’s the size of mantle that counts. We have you covered, no matter how big your fireplace may be.

You can decorate your mantle once you have your mantle scarf in place buy using a nice spring floral or holiday
garland, laid to the back of the mantle, and put your favorite pictures, crystal pieces, candles or intertwine your garland among your other decorations on the mantle. Experiment and use your imagination, that’s what makes it personal.

Some people want and elaborate display on their mantle at holiday time, and just a few simple pieces the rest of the year. Me, I love my crystal pieces, and display them on my mantle, to protect them from breakage from grandkids, you know how that goes !
