This Christmas I wanted a more simple mantle for the holiday.
So I skipped the ribbon and ornaments that usually grace my mantle and instead I used really greenery to fill out my artificial garland.
Here is the greenery I picked up for free, more on that later.
First I cut down my greenery into small manageable pieces.
And then I tucked them into the garland filling it out.
I just love decorating the hearth on my rather large brick fireplace. This year a large Santa keeps watch over the decorations.
See how plump the garland looks after the clippings were added. And now I have the added bonus of the real pine smell in all my rooms.
So now that the mantle is done I have to figure out how to turn all of this into a table vignette for my dining room. Please wish me luck.
