Decorating the Mantel

I started by clearing the mantel off completely. I made the short strips of evergreen garland about 3-4 feet long. I then secured each side to the mantel and used deer antlers on each end. I then added the center piece of garland and secured it took the left and right pieces of garland and to the mantel. I then added the decorations. I used the dried fruit and string ornaments and cedar candles and sliced wood ornaments I made. I also added bronze animals and rustic lanterns and pinecones and berries.

  1. I do so like your mantel but amazed at the Magnolia if you are in Latvia as I am? Tried with a pink mag but winter killed that and my trained pear tree to. I have another article on amazing facts on history this Monday. Thank you SW for taking the time to read.

      Thank you and I live in Louisiana in the southern part of the United States and the Magnolia bloom is our state flower. Our winters are fairly mild so magnolias grow really well here. The tree I have is called a Tulip Tree and it is in the Magnolia tree family and has beautiful pink blooms in the early spring. Thank you for reading my blog and I look forward to reading your next article.
