How to Decorate Your Mantle

It’s time for video number 3 of 5 in my Holiday Inspiration series!

As I mentioned before I’m working with Third Floor Design Studio (the HOT NEW videographers on the scene, check out their other work here) to do a series of 5 Holiday Videos! The first video was: Decorating your Christmas Tree like a Total Party, the second video was: How to make a giant wall bow!

And the third: How to decorate your mantle! So tell your fireplace it’s time to get it’s swag on.

So go on and swag yourself, or your mantle.
