This is the simplest Christmas mantle I've ever done, and it turned out to be one of my favorites!
Since the metal tray wreath is so large, I didn't want too much stuff on the mantle competing with it. And, after living with it plain for a while, I finally came up with some embellishments that I liked...polka dots, greenery, and ornaments strung together.
I checked off a project I've been wanting to try...glittered feathers! It was so easy! I applied mod-podge with a foam brush to the areas where I wanted the glitter, and then sprinkled on extra fine gold glitter and tapped off the excess. I love the extra touch of glam.
Thanks to My Fabuless Life who shared this free printable that I framed. Chevron + Metallic - what could be better?
I know! Sparkly ornaments. That might be better.
Night time glow...
So, my mantle is done, now to get the rest of my house in shape!
