Anne's creative juices flowed as she pulled together all available resources-- Books of Mormon boxes, brochure boxes, contact paper (she'd had her eyes open for the contact paper for some time: a brick pattern and marble pattern), a nativity set, tinsel, LED lights, bamboo place mats, cardboard, markers, tinsel, plasti-tac, existing decorations.
After a couple of modifications, here's what she made.
|First, lay the foundation and get the big picture.|
|Cover boxes with contact paper.|
|Add a black backdrop to make the fire glow!|
|Never happier than when she's creating!|
|Place vertical walls to support mantle.|
|Recycle another piano box for the mantle.|
|Marble mantle, stockings hung with care, and lots of careful patching of brickwork.|
|A bit of tinsel to highlight our African nativity set.|
Merry Christmas to all!!!!
