Tuesday Tips ~ Decorating Mantel for Holidays

Here is what I have found helpful when decorating my mantel, glorified TV shelf, for the various holidays.

First tip is that you need to declutter anyplace you want to switch out decorations on a seasonal/holiday basis. 

The less you have in the space that is year round, the less you have to adapt to the ‘seasonal/holiday’ theme. 

Here in Texas one of the hardest things for me to hide/store are candles.  Depending on their color they don’t adapt well to different holidays/seasons, and with the heat we have here I can’t just stick them up in the attic {our only large quantity of storage space in our current home}

And I l-o-v-e all types of candles!  Here is how I adapt them to holiday/seasonal themes.

First take the item you want to keep in the space, but need to disguise.  Grab a seasonal bag that the item will fit inside of.

Place items inside of bag.  Double check that the bag is balanced, and not going to tip over easily.

Place your decoration back in the space.


Now your candles {or other items}  are in the perfect disguise for the season!
