With most of my decor still in boxes, it's a challenge to decorate. Thus far, my mantel is the only thing I've tackled. There's not one picture hanging on a wall anywhere! Granted I'm enjoying the de-cluttered look, and am trying to take this time to scour Pinterest for ideas.
We've owned this home for about 6 months. 2 of those months we were not living in the home - smashed out walls and cabinets, torn out flooring and fresh paint kinda made me stay out. *smiles* Then, a couple weeks after moving into a home with renovations still in progress, I hit my head. And now, I am under doctor's orders to do as little as possible. Having a concussion sure takes a toll on one's life! 3 months down - and doc says 9 more to go! *sigh*
Here's what the mantel has looked like since we got here...

This is my Christmas napkin wreath! It's one of the most easiest projects I have ever tackled!
Simply get cocktail napkins (dinner napkins if you'd like) and unfold them. Next, grab the middle of the opened napkin - like you're going to use it as tissue paper in a gift bag. Twist the "end" just a tad and tuck it into your wreath!
It'll take 1-2 packs of napkins, depending on how full your want your wreath/the size of the wreath. Play around with color combos, solids or even a rainbow!
|Art in the back was made by my handicapped Aunt, and given to family members one Christmas!|
Happy Valentine's Day!
