I love decorating for holidays and other occasions. I had a lot of unused red decorations left over from Christmas, so I decided to decorate the mantel above my fireplace. I made some new projects, but a lot of the items were things that I already owned or made for other blog posts. These ideas can be used not only for a mantel, but for any space in your home.
For the first project, I made a garland for the mantel by tying 5″ strips of red and white tulle around some Christmas lights.
The next project I made was a 12″ heart-shaped wreath covered with red burlap.
I wrapped the burlap around the wreath and secured it with red pipe cleaner.
Two more projects were made with products from Dollar Tree.
I painted the frames red using Krylon Dual Paint+Primer. Then, I glued together glass bowls on candle holders and filled the bowls with plastic heart gems.
Finally, I arranged all the items together on the mantel.
