Take a walk in the yard to snip some wispy branches to create a lovely, natural Fall Mantle Display. You can make Fall Mantle Magic in Minutes! Snips of branches, large rubber bands and battery twinkle lights. Done!
Fall Mantle Magic With Tree Clippings, Rubber Bands and Twinkle Lights
Light-weight branches with colorful leaves work best, but use what you find to bring the outdoors in. Mix in thin, leafless branches for some structural interest.
The rubber band should be pulled taut. The branches will be held in place with the rubber band. I used 2 bands to cover either side of the mantle. The tiny nails are leftover from hanging Christmas stockings. No hammering or extra holes needed. On Amazon... Here.
String the twinkle lights over the rubber band before you insert the leaves and branches. The lights give a soft twinkle to light up the leaves and the mantle. On Amazon... Here.
The branches and leaves will cover the rubber bands. The rubber bands will hold the display firmly in place.
