Spiced Up Mantel
Begin with the traditional blanket of greenery, and drip Spanish moss over the edge for Lower South atmosphere. Add clusters
of pinecones, magnolia leaves, and peppers, along with candles in red glass cylinders. Create a garland using various kinds
of multicolored peppers. Cut a piece of wire the length of your mantel, allowing for the garland's drape, and string the peppers
from one end to the other. An 8-foot length takes about 30 minutes to assemble. Note: Wear latex or rubber gloves when stringing
Attach the finished garland with a few hidden nails or 3M Hooks With Command Adhesive.
