A Very Merry Mantle

Christmas season is upon us and so must my mantle.  This year’s theme is Christmas trees.

Ok, and now for the how to.  I started with cardboard cones from Michaels.  I then gathered some sweaters from goodwill, scrapbook paper and craft fur.

I started by wrapping the fabric and paper around the cone and securing it with hot glue.

I then had to figure out a solution for the hollow cone.  I decided to cut up circles from some cardboard that I had on hand and hot glue it to the cone.  I varied the heights of the cardboard circles within the cone in order to get different heights of the trees.  I then placed the trees on candlesticks that I’ve collected from Goodwill.

And there you go, some great Christmas trees for the mantle.
