miniature mantel scene

Prices may vary instore and online.
Step 1
First, measure and cut a piece of yarn that’s long enough to hang above your mantel. String the yarn with ornament balls to build your first garland. To do this, slide on an ornament, then tie a single knot around the loop to hold it in place. Repeat this to add as many ornaments as you’d like, then hang your garland.
Step 2

Repeat Step 1 to make a second ornament garland, then a third. Use your favorite ornaments and have fun deciding how to arrange them!

TIP: Try to layer each new garland over the previous one(s) by hanging them at slightly different angles.

Step 3
Now, arrange a scene with miniature trees and snow on your mantel, underneath the garlands.
Step 4
Finally, place your pom-pom garland so that it drapes across the mantel, framing your little tree scene. Lovely!
