Pair glit­ter­ing gold snowflakes with sim­ple book-page cir­cles to make a chic man­tel gar­land like this one from Christy Lit­tle at Our South­ern Home. Use a 1½" punch to cut out cir­cles from the pages of an old book. Use a reg­u­lar hole punch to cre­ate a hole in the cen­ter of each cir­cle. Thread snowflakes and stacks of book-page cir­cles onto a length of twine, spac­ing evenly. When fin­ished, hang the gar­land from loops in the twine in the cen­ter and at each end. DE­SIGNED AND PHO­TOGRAPHED BY CHRISTY LIT­TLE OF OURSOUTHERNHOMESC.COM.

DE­SIGNER HINTFor easy sym­me­try, drape your twine over three re­mov­able ad­he­sive hooks first, and then as­sem­ble each half of the gar­land separately.
