Tuesday Tips – Fake Mantle

This beautiful mantle piece has been nicely decorated for Christmas. 

But as we don’t all have fireplaces, here’s what I suggest to do instead. 
Decorate a dresser, a shelf, a table or a window and show it off like it’s your mantle. 
You can use a garland or simply go out and pick some greenery from a bush or a tree.
Here are some ideas.

    I didn't know they were called fake mantle, and I always imagined having them around a fireplace. So I just learned something new. Thanks for sharing though, Hege! xx

      Hi Gudy,
      fake mantle was just something I made up.. They are really called garlands. You can get both real and artificial ones. hx
