And this year is no exception. My Coca Cola star inspired design was a direct result of a lucky recent find. The black metal Cola Cola sign had just come home from a recent trip at Granny and Grumpa’s.
How I did it
The evergreens I had available to me were of the flat variety, so in order to get such a full look, I pulled a few tricks.
The sign was first put into place,then the branches were layered. But with flat branches, it helped to stand many on their sides so you could appreciate them.
My first attempt was weak and I had to redo it. The scale of this fireplace is always screaming for more.
Here you can see more of the layering. The branches behind the sign are on their sides so they filled up the space with as much green as possible.
And I stuck them in like crazy from the front too. Here’s a side view of the overhang.
Ok, we are ready to spray on some snow and decorate!
The greens were sprayed in a heavy handed sort of spotty way where snow would naturally land and stay put.
Then stars and spent hydrangeas were tucked into place along with loosely hung mini lights.
Hey, wanna see it at night? It’s really glowy.
One total casual messy loose junk styled Christmas fireplace mantel.
It’s a little crazy, but I’m liking it just fine.
Look who’s here! The 12 Days of Christmas’ gang’s got some new stuff today.
See you tomorrow for Day 3!
