I had been searching for an idea for my Christmas mantle and wanted to do something a little different. I found a sign I liked on etsy...but it was $100, and seriously, there is no way I would pay that. But, I did have a pallet here! Soooo, I made my own! I used 2, .59 cent tubes of craft paint...that I already had here. I love how it came out.
I used some clippings off my tree, placed them on the mantle, added a strand of white lights that I already had.
Then I sent my kids out to collect sticks! I made stars, painted them white, and hung them with fishing line. Ta DA! Love how it turned out! Love that it's a little different from the typical mantle decor!
