Well, one of my mantles, at least. As I mentioned in my mid-summer mantle post, I usually am about 2 months late completing and photographing my “real” mantle, so I figured I’d share what I had so it looks like I am ball (at least once in a while).
This mantle is upstairs in our dining room; here’s the tutorial to make it, by the way. It’s due for a new paint job (I’ll be trying my hand at chalk paint-yippee!)
Anyway, I love every element of this, especially the embroidery hoop wreath…I see one of these for every season/holiday in my future! Here’s what you need to make your own…
I think gathering the supplies was the hardest part of this project:) Simply cut lengths of your branches, and hot glue them to your hoop. Hang or prop against the wall, and add your letter of choice! I used a 14″ hoop, and the metal letters at Hobby Lobby fit in perfectly.
