Every year I see everyone decorating their mantle in their home. However, I live in apartment my entire life and I have only once had one with a fireplace, mostly because we have always lived in very warm states. I decided this year to make hanging faux fireplace for myself kinda, hehe. I had a birch wood in the closet waiting around for me do something with it for about a year. I finally found a new way to bring life to it this Christmas.
I decided to use white yarn to hold up the birch wood stocking holder. I tied each end to my shutters or you can use an empty wall.
I then used white yarn to also tie the stockings to the wood. Its that simple and fast to do.
I wanted to cover up the sections to were I tied the birch to the shutters. I used two of my wooden deer stencils I made last year. Click here to see the full tutorial.
Of course we can’t forget about my 25 days of Christmas advent tag calendar. Today is day two and here it is!
Two days down and a lot more to go.
