Discover the secret to securely hanging garland with 3M Command Cord Bundlers, and join me as we layer Norfolk pine with Target’s affordable juniper garland, add a touch of dusty blue velvet ribbon, and finish off the festive scene with battery-operated lights, beaded stockings, and elegant gold candlesticks.
1. The Game-Changer: 3M Command Cord Bundlers
Let’s kick things off with the real hero of the mantel setup – 3M Command Cord Bundlers. These nifty little tools are a lifesaver when it comes to hanging garland securely without leaving a mark on your mantle. No nails, no damage – just a sturdy hold that lets you transform your space without the worry of aftermath.
2. Layered Garland Elegance: Norfolk Pine and Juniper from Target
Creating a lush green backdrop, I’ve layered Norfolk pine garland with Target’s budget-friendly juniper garland. The mix of textures and shades brings a touch of the outdoors inside, giving the mantel a natural and festive feel that’s easy on the eyes.
3. Twinkle and Glow: Battery-Operated Lights
The magic of Christmas wouldn’t be complete without a bit of sparkle. Battery-operated lights woven through the garland add a warm and enchanting glow, turning the mantel into a focal point that beckons everyone to gather ’round.
4. Dusty Blue Velvet Ribbon: A Touch of Elegance
For a sophisticated touch, I’ve incorporated dusty blue velvet ribbon into the garland. The richness of the velvet complements the greenery, adding depth and a hint of opulence to the mantel display.
5. Beaded Stockings: Shimmering Delight
Hanging from the mantel with care are beaded stockings that shimmer and catch the glow of the lights. These elegant stockings bring a touch of glamour to the scene, turning the mantel into a focal point of festive sophistication.
6. Elegant Illumination: Gold Candlesticks
Adding a final touch of refinement, gold candlesticks are strategically placed to provide a touch of height and elegance. The flickering candlelight enhances the warm ambiance, making the mantel a cozy and inviting spot for holiday gatherings.
