Christmas Banner for the Fireplace

My 2020 Christmas theme for the family room is "Christmas Flower Market".    I picked a gorgeous Poinsettia alphabet  banner that I found on Pinterest to print and hang across the fireplace mantel.    The banner is pretty enough just to hang as it comes,   but of course as usual .....I wanted to embellish it to give it my personal touch.

Here is how it looks as it comes straight off the printer.....just click here to get your FREE copy...... 

I layered my banner on vintage white doilies......

After I got it hung.....I glued on my embellishments 

I may yet add some fairy lights to my banner.

I carried my theme to the floor by adding a couple of market baskets to the front of the hearth.....

I filled my baskets with pretties that you might find at a Christmas Flower Market......matching floral wreaths.....

flocked tabletop Christmas tree's......

And for the final touch,   I placed a couple of Christmas pillows between the market baskets.    To add a little whimsy,  a sweet goat pillow completes the vignette.

I am close to having the mantel finished and can't wait to share it with you guys!

  4. Such a pretty Christmas banner! It looks gorgeous hanging on your fireplace. I think it would be lovely hanging from a bookcase, a mirror, or above a dining sideboard too.

  5. The goat pillow is too cute and fits in perfectly.
