    How do you hang garland from the front of the mantel?

    • seasonalhome says:

      Hi Stephanie. If you don’t have a problem with adding something “permanent” to your mantel, I would recommend adding eye screws in an inconspicuous spot (near the back of your mantel) so you can place heavy duty fishing line, zip ties or pipe cleaners through them and around your garland for a secure hang. However, if you don’t want to add anything permanent to your mantel and your garland isn’t too heavy, COMMAND strips are a good option. Just be sure to note the weight limits (listed on them) to choose the right ones.

    I absolutely love your blog and find nearly all of your post’s to be precisely what I’m looking for.
    Does one offer guest writers to write content in your case?
    I wouldn’t mind composing a post or elaborating on a number of the subjects you write with regards to here. Again, awesome web site!
