Well here it is our DIY holiday mantle for 2013. I decided to go with the colors of our tree which are copper and gold, add in some burlap for contrast and I think it came out great.
There are a lot of little projects that came together for this DIY holiday mantle.
The deco mesh garland, see tutorial here
The burlap elf stockings, see tutorial here
Burlap NOEL banner, see tutorial here
Paper Mache trees in copper, gold glitter and yarn, see below!
Now enjoy more pics of the mantle.
My cousin Wendy gave me the candle holders, I am thinking I may spray paint them copper or gold. What do you guys think?
I also need some more candles.
The elf stockings and the Noel banner are some of my favorites, big impact but not that much effort. My kind of projects lol
I used this copper and gold wired ribbon for a lot of the projects. Also those star ‘tree toppers’ are actually just cheapo star ornaments from dollar tree.
You know all those expensive trees in the stores, I have been eyeing some at target for the longest at $20 a piece…not happening. I found these paper mache cones at Michaels for 99c each. Yup less than a buck! Now we’re talking lol All I did to jazz the bigger ones up was spray paint. I used copper spray paint for one and found this really kool gold glitter spray paint for the other. Yes thats right the glitter is already in the paint. I know freaking amazing. For the smaller trees I wrapped some yarn around it for a more textured look that complimented the burlap. I think they came out great!
I love these Santas
Without the lights on
Up next the xmas tree and I gotta hide those cords!
