This mantel garland took no more than 10 minutes to put together and YOU TOO CAN DO THIS!
I made a quick video for you.
The first thing that I did was to grab the eucalyptus and lay it across the mantel. I like it to drape over, so I started on the left side with the stems facing the middle and then went over to the right side….rinse and repeat. That left a disturbing gaping hole in the middle where the branches are and I covered it with more of the dried greenery.
Laying the dried roses on top to fill in holes and add color was the next step. Speaking of step…always step back and look at your work in progress.
You know those bridal bouquets with the pretty silk ribbon? I have some antique ribbon that I hand painted in a blush watercolor effect, and wove it lightly through the floral garland.
Romantic without being contrived or too over the top.
