For those who don't know OCDD is Obsessive Compulsive Decorating Disorder. Yep, and I have it. Sometimes it goes into a brief state of remission but then it reared it's ugly head again. This time the OCDD has directed it's attention at my mantel.
This is my mantel before:
This is my mantel post OCDD episode.
No major changes. Just the addition of this vintage inspired wreath.
I think it looks a bit like an old bottle brush wreath (that I wish I had, by the way).
I call it my Poor Man's Bottle Brush Wreath.
It was cheap. It was easy. My 2 year old helped me.
All it required was some very old tinsel from the thrift store (50 cents) a wreath form from the same thrift store (50 cents) and about 10 minutes. That's it! No glue, no mess.
