Coastal Christmas Mantelpiece Tutorial

As a blogger, it is time for me to start getting my Christmas on! I am starting with my mantel this year and selected a coastal theme in blues and greens. This mantelpiece arrangement is the first project of this Christmas season for me.

The first thing I did to create this mantelpiece was to get a board about 24″ x 6 ” and adhere two of the velcro Command strips to the bottom of it.  This will give me added security when I put this on my mantel.  Next, I took a piece of styrofoam that was  2″ x  4″ x11″ , wrapped a piece of chicken wire around the front and top of it and nailed this to my board.  If I had left off the chicken wire, the weight of my arrangement could pull the nails right through the foam and it might end up on the hearth in pieces.
