Being a little obsessed with mantle decorating (Check out the past 7 years of mantles here!), I'm going to share my handiwork on the mantle this year, which isn't as impressive as the past ones, but it still gets on the list!
I made this garland in 2005 or 2006...
I distinctly remember glittering it while talking to a customer. So, this was a store prop :)
