You'll notice that I also included a moss wreath as an afterthought. I ended up with three-quarters of an entire bag of moss leftover and I couldn't bear to see it go to waste. I set to rummaging through the disgrace of a craft
Easy. Hot glue said moss to wreath and call it a day. I also threw a little extra moss into each of the hurricane jars that house two gold candles.
I'm really happy with how the mantle looks thus far although it still has a long way to go. I'm not thrilled with the two picture frames in the middle and have yet to decide what will take their place. Obviously I'm thinking some sort of greenery project.
Also, I'm no longer a fan of the wrought iron wheel that sits atop our mantle and will be replacing it with some sort of mirror-type addition soon. I recently stumbled across this pin and am thinking about testing it out. They look a bit labor intensive so I'm think it's a project that will be tackled during a weekend when The Husband is willing to occupy two sets of tiny hands for a few hours.
So, what have you D.I.Y'd lately?
