Glowing Christmas Tree Decorating Part 2 – the mantle. This is my introduction to Sandra’s Christmas theme that continues with the fireplace mantel. There’s not as much in the way of how-to about the mantle compared to the Christmas tree decorating, but she shares some easy to do tricks she has used in the past. The mantle is a lovely balance with the Christmas tree and the family room. Sandra shared some beautiful, detailed photos of the mantle. Let’s sit back and enjoy the show!
This is the mantle design I did before the tree went up. Once the tree was complete I realized it did not match my theme to make everything glow. I decided to remove the red berries and pine cones and added white glass bulbs.
