We have an old ugly fireplace...so I try to mask it as much as possible:) I usually have a decent amount of decor on the mantel and a banner hanging below.
This was my summer/4th of July themed mantel...it will probably stay up until Kamili's birthday in August.
I love that kit and have already made two banners with it and have plenty left for at least two more!!
Here is a sample of the way they intended the kit to be used. I am really liking the new Paper pumpkins. Sign up here today!!!
