I began a little decorating today. I wanted to give Nester's Mantel Garland a try. I don't have a fireplace or a mantel so I used my old cabinet that my tv is on as my mantel. I wired together two strands of my wimpy old garland (I now wish I had added about 2 more) and then I added some red berry garland in. Added lights, lots of tiny white starfish, some ornaments here and there.
I added bows to the corners and tucked in some goldish antique looking roses.
I even added a few birdnests for good measure. Plus Nester would do the same thing and I like how she does things.
Well, this will be my mantel this year. I really wanted to put the tv in this cabinet, put a mirror above and have some nice things on the mantel, but the tv will not fit in the cabinet. :-(
Now that I am looking at my photographs, my garland needs some more weight to it. I will work on it again this week and make it fuller.
