I went to Hobby Lobby last weekend and was pleasantly surprised that they still had a few Christmas items left. I bought this beautiful garland that looks like branches covered with icicles for $5. I thought it would be perfect for a winter time look on my fireplace.

I like to put some of my Mercury Glass on the fireplace in the winter. Since we don’t have the twinkly lights of the Christmas tree anymore, it’s nice to have the sparkle and shine of these candlesticks instead.
I made this burlap banner! I used the tutorial from Bridget at Everyday Chaos and I won’t repeat how I did because I pretty much followed what she said to do. The only thing I did different was I made each pennant and then assembled it. I used silver craft paint because I didn’t have any fabric paint and it worked just fine. I also added the silver Martha Stewart glitter while the paint was still wet. I made a little snowflake stencil to use on the bottom of each pennant.
I love it! That banner was soooo inexpensive to make and I think it really looks great on my fireplace. It did take me several hours to make so it does take an investment in time – but not money (isn’t that always the way).
