Here is our New Year's Eve/New Year's Day/January fireplace mantel! It's a little crazy meets festive, but much needed after all the Christmas decor got put away. We decided to add some white lights to the mantel to leave some holiday cheer.
We got a little inspiration for the pom pom garland and finger knitted garland from the blog Life in Grace. I have never made either before so I did some research and found this youtube video on how to make finger garland. My seven year old son watched it over and over again with me and we both learned how to do it! What a fun way to spend some quality Christmas break time together.
For the Pom Pom garland I purchased two sets of Clover Pom Pom makers from Joann's. I used the largest size to make the white pom pom garland and the second smallest size to make the coral pom pom garland. After each pom that I made I simply used one long strand of yarn to tie off each one so it is continuous.
