In case you missed it, yesterday I shared the first part of my Christmas Home Tour! Today, I’m adding to it and sharing my Nordic Christmas Mantel with DIY Wood Burned Garland.
I used some of the same items from last year‘s mantel, but made it a little more modern with the addition of a little black and geometric prints. When I was browsing through the CreativeBug site, I came across this video on how to make Wood Burned Garland and I instantly fell in love. I knew it would make the perfect addition to this year’s mantel.
CreativeBug has over 500 instructional videos on various crafts including home decor, knitting, sewing, jewelry, food and kid’s crafts. There is something for everyone.
I love how the white and wood garland brightens the dark mantel. It really pops and completes the look. And guess what, it was super easy to make! Definitely a project you can complete in 1-2 hours.
Before I dive into more details on the garland, I’ll give you a tour of some of the other features on the mantel. I found these nordic trees this year and love them so much. Those paired with my favorite pillow and the look is complete.
I also updated our stockings with a black monogram and a little boxwood. And if you are counting, yes I still need to make one for our newest addition!
Now let’s get to the amazing garland!
The DIY Wood Burned Garland video on CreativeBug is a great place to get full details on how to make this amazing garland. I’ve never used a wood burning tool before and Courtney shares several great tips!
Here are the main supplies I used. A wood burning tool, wood round tags ( I got mine at Michaels), masking tape, white paint and string. You can find other helpful tools on the CreativeBug site.
To give my wood a geometric look, I taped off different sections and then painting the remaining area white.
Then, I did a variety of burning designs including a few holiday ones!
