How to: Dress Your Mantle – Holiday Style
Decorating the mantle for the holidays is so important – This is a place of magic and wonderment. The fireplace is everything! It is important to just layer things on. The result will be a full and festive display.
Begin with a simple garland – it could have pinecones or just be the garland. We have quite a few different options here at Alice Lane! Wire it to the mantle to keep it in place.
Next – add picks and branches into the garland to make it more full. For this garland we added a lighter green than the garland with berries. You can wire those in or just bend the branches around the garland.
Next – group your ornaments in clusters throughout the garland. You can wire these to keep them in place as well. Add ornaments to each side or keep it simple and just wire your clusters down the sides as well.
You can also attach ornaments form the garland for the hanging affect if you have another place for your stockings.
