How to decorate your mantelpiece for Christmas

Christmas is the time when you can really let your artistic flair come to the fore, and here at Hayes Garden World we always have a massive choice of decorations, garlands, trees, lights and everything else you need to enjoy the festive season. If you want some different ideas for decorating your mantelpiece this short video shows you how easy it is to put together several different elements to create a stunning decorative piece. The same principles can be applied to making a stunning table centrepiece (just click the link below to watch Yvonne creating a table piece in more traditional Christmas colours).
This video starts with a garland of soft gold leaves and the first thing to be added is a medium sized bauble. Three baubles are placed equal distances apart down the garland and these give you the basis from which to add all your other pieces. Yvonne glues on the larger pieces, which can sometimes be quite difficult when the decorations are heavily glittered. A ball of conifer twigs, leaves, another bauble contrasting to the first one and a 3D star are added to this group of decorations.
The twig and cone sprays are wired onto the garland close to the three groups of decorations to add some body and just another dimension to the garland. The final stage is to place the garland onto the mantelpiece then you can do any adjustments, clean off any stray strings of glue, take any tags off the baubles, pull leaves into shape and place some of the pieces over the front of the mantle to soften the edge. We have also added a couple of bronze stag’s heads and candle sticks holding church candles. You can also add a small string of battery lights just to add another dimension; with this colour palette amber or warm white would work really well.
Yvonne also completed a mantle decoration in frosty silver, white and charcoal with cool white lights using the same principles as the warm bronze garland. This video shows that you don’t necessarily have to use just the standard green garland. To keep down the cost you can add pieces of everyday home-wares which, such as ornaments, candles and candlesticks, are not necessarily Chrismassy.
