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!

  • Cinnamon can boost metabolism, since the body uses more energy to process the spice than it does for other foods. Cinnamon may have an insulin-like action in the body, which is seen in the way sugar is broken down in the body. Cinnamon can also improve body metabolism, targeting the fat deposited in the abdominal area.

  • While anxiety and stress can play into neuropathy, they can’t actually damage your nerves. This means that stress isn’t a root cause of neuropathy. Even if you’re incredibly stressed every day for months, that by itself won’t cause damage to your nerves.
