Ha! Just when you thought my mantle couldn't get any more fou-fou...I add more fluff! Last year, I fell in love with this meshy stuff and used it everywhere I could possibly drape it. It adds the perfect touch of whimsy to almost anything. Especially a plain jane, tired old garland. And it's very easy to work with...you cannot mess it up, I promise. Just pouf and fluff and mold it to the shape you want...and voila, it's fabulous!
I love it all glittered up and sparkling at night...so pretty.
I also added some metal candy canes I got on our anniversary trip to Fairhope, Alabama last year...
And a cute little lime green metal present in the middle! And ribbon...of course...you can't have too much ribbon.
My tree may not be decorated yet, but it does have a fabulously fluffy bow on top. I can never get a star to stay on my tree, so this year I used my mesh to create a simple topper. That is, if you can call a ginormous fou fou meshy bow...simple? Whatever it is, I LOVE it!
