Try using Keyhole hangers:

 

I would measure a straight line using a level and space the hangers every 12 inches for safety reasons.  You have to be exact on both the wall and mantle location brackets.  Remember, that the large hole allows the screw head to slide in and the small hole is where the wall screw rests to hold up the weight.
