7 Tips for Mantle Decorating for Christmas
 
Decorating for Christmas can be a very merry time, but it can get overwhelming fast! Follow the tips below for help and guidance on how to decorate your mantle special to you and your family.
 

1

Use command hooks on the top of the Mantle facing the wall to secure your garland.

2

Collect different size and shape ornaments.

3

Use objects that are dear to you or you collect. 

4

Use stems to stick into the garland. This makes it look fuller and more interesting!

5

Wait until 2 weeks before Christmas to use fresh garland because it dries out.

6

Use the prices of garland to secure your ribbon and ornaments.

7

Use the "loop" technique with ribbon throughout the garland.
 
Loop Technique:
Begin by holding one end of the ribbon. Then create a loop and continue this back and forth! As you work your way to the end of the ribbon, make the loops slightly smaller. Finish by tying a florist wire around the back and twist. With the long florist wires you can use the same wire to tie it to the mantle or tree!
