Here are a few pictures of the results of all our hard work. Enjoy!
This is the full picture of the mantel.
I made the wreath with a wire wreath frame, craft paper and coffee filters.
Took me about 45 minutes to an hour.
My roommate had the idea of sticks and both of us, for whatever reason, thought they would lay flatter, so if anyone wants any chrome sticks we have some extra. (also, sorry neighbors, our yard is now silver).
We then bought some cranberry sticks at Joann's for only a dollar each!
Dont have a working fireplace? Its ok!
Put some christmas lights in with the wood
I made these as well. They are actually magazines that I folded, spray painted black and then put glitter all over them.
At the top of the stairs we hung these ornaments from the ceiling. Don't touch! They will fall! :)
Our little tree is just perfect! With our paper chain, homemade ornaments and pinecones it really makes it feel like christmas.
Outside we have out fresh garland around the door
Hope you have a merry Christmas!
