Casa Quickie: A DIY Mantelpiece

I love Su Casa member JenLovesGreen's inventive Christmas mantel shelf, but I'm sure some of you mantel-less folks don't want to spend money and time installing a shelf just for one holiday. So, I was delighted to come across this makeshift mantelpiece idea at Living Etc. If you're lacking in the fireplace department, you can create your own mantel for hanging stockings by finding a branch in your backyard, trimming it of excess twigs and bark, and spray
painting it white. Then, hang it with wide, red ribbon from your crown molding (or anywhere on your wall), add stockings, and celebrate! Oh, and don't forget to fill those stockings with lots of goodies!

I did this last week, after seeing this picture! I used a darker red spray paint and used silver ribbon to hang it. It looks so adorable and everyone that's seen it loves it. Thanks Casa & JenLovesGreen for the great idea!

There was an idea like this in the December Real Simple, only you balance a long stick between two vases and clothespin your Christmas cards to it as a nice way to display the ones you get! I'm loving this stocking one, though, too. I have to write all this down for next year!

That is way better than my 3M little stick on hooks that I used for my stockings :-/

I have a mantel, but this is just so cute. I may rip the one I have out to do this. :)
