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.


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


Collect different size and shape ornaments.


Use objects that are dear to you or you collect. 


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


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


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


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!


  • Everybody is different and the way you lose weight might also vary from another person. Not many of us know that belly fat can also be a result of stress. This is because when you are stressed, cortisol levels in the body rise, resulting in storage of fat around the belly area.

  • Many eye exercises are touted as ways to naturally improve eyesight and overcome nearsightedness. The Bates Method suggests palming, movement and visualization techniques to reshape the eyeball and improve vision. Yan Bao Jian Cao suggests massage and acupressure as ways to relieve strain and eye problems. However, none of these exercises are verified to have more than anecdotal or placebo results. While vision therapy is a serious area of optometry that addresses problems with alignment, tracking and strain, there’s no sound evidence that vision exercises can affect clarity.
