Bring the picture of snow into the home without bringing in the cold!
Decorate the fireplace with touches of “snow”. I used baby’s breath, small silver Christmas ornaments, silver beaded garland, and ribbon woven through Christmas greenery on the mantle to give the look of snow.
I began by placing a piece of snow blanket to cover the top of the mantle. Pull the end of the blanket to give an uneven edge to the “snow”. Lay pieces of Christmas greenery branches across the top of the mantle. Place your stocking holders on the mantle. Place the candles on the mantle.
Make a small garland using the greenhouse twine to wrap the greenery pieces together. Take a garland made from the Christmas greenery and attach it to the end of the mantle. Place a second garland on the other side of the mantle.
Cut the ribbon into pieces about 12” long. Using a small piece of floral wrap tape, attach the ribbon to a short piece of wire. Make a hook out of the wire and attach the pieces of ribbon to the garlands hanging over the end of the mantle. Make several loops of ribbon and attach it to a piece of wire using the floral wrap tape. Place the loops around the candles creating a small bow. Make additional pieces of ribbon to weave through the greenery on top of the mantle.
Wrap wire around several pine cone and attach a cone in the garland. Place additional pine cones throughout the greenery.
Fashion glitter in the mantle by adding silver ornaments and silver beaded garlands. The silver will reflect the light from the candles.
Add the “snow” by clustering pieces of baby’s Breath with floral wrap tape. Place the clusters throughout the mantle. Make the “snow” drifts as heavy as you like!
