Jean Allsopp / Styling Alan Henderson
Just as you breathe a sigh of relief that the holidays have come and gone, you look at your now-neglected mantel and decide it needs a face-lift. Is it possible to update this focal point on a budget? Associate Photo Stylist Alan Henderson shows how easy it is to stretch your dollar and create stylish arrangements.
No Nail in Sight
Here, Alan groups a large photograph with two smaller prints. Flowers complete the look. The frames are propped on the mantel, so you can swap prints without leaving nail holes.
Frame prints yourself for inexpensive art. Purchase mat board at a crafts store, and then cut it with a craft knife to fit it into a store-bought frame.
