I start with green garland which I wrapped with white lights. Next I draped the garland from one end of the mantle to the other. The garland I chose is artificial, however, it is as real a fake as I have ever seen. With our cat, real pines isn't a good option. We have our boy and girl snowman standing guard on either side of the fireplace, waiting for Santa to arrive.
