I finally just finished setting up my holiday decorations for Christmas. It’s so nice to get them up and done. Some years I tend to procrastinate and end up waiting till mid December, but this year I made things easier on myself and started in November. I’ll be sharing more of my holiday decorations with you this week!
One of the first things I decorated was my mantle. It’s also one of my favorite places to decorate; maybe because it’s in our family room and we enjoy it every day, but hanging the stocking’s and garland gets me motivated to decorate the rest of my house.
This year I updated my mantle decor with a new Rustic Wood Frame and some candles from American Home™ by Yankee Candle®. Of course I had to make the wood frame, but the candles I found at Walmart. Their American Home™ by Yankee Candle® collection has some amazing holiday fragrances to get you in the holiday spirit. I purchased the Fall Morning, Homemade Pumpkin Pie, and Fresh Balsam Fir.
These are all great fragrances to gift to loved ones this holiday season, especially since they are inspired & have a true to life fragrance. All 3 will make a great holiday gift, but the Fresh Balsam Fir will really get you in the Christmas mood. I love using these candles to gift to co-workers, especially when you don’t know what else to get them. They’re also perfect for last minute gifts including stocking stuffers!
I personally love burning them while decorating. Make sure to follow instructions while using American Home™ by Yankee Candle® brand products. I also suggest to always burn your candle on a heat resistant surface and never leave it unattended.
If your looking to update your decor with a easy do it yourself frame, then here’s a tutorial on how to make your own 8″x10″ rustic wood frame.
- Wood, 1/2″ thick x 1 1/2″ wide. Cut 4 pieces 13″ long, 2 pieces at 12″ long and 2 pieces at 8″ long.
- L Brackets
- Hammer & nails or Nail gun & Compressor
- Sanding block
- Wood Stain
- Art in 8″x10″ (find the “Merry & bright” printable in my Etsy shop here)
Step 1: Cut the wood to size and lightly sand the edges.
Step 2: Lay down 2 of the 8″ pieces and 2 of the 13″ pieces. Fasten with the L brackets.
Step 3: Add the remaining pieces of wood with either a hammer & nails, or a nail gun.
Step 4: Stain the frame.
Step 5: Add your art to the back with tape, and display!
So whether you’re looking for stocking stuffers or last minute holiday gift idea’s, the American Home™ by Yankee Candle® collection is perfect. You can find the entire American Home™ by Yankee Candle® collection at Walmart in the Home and Candle section located in the home decor area of the store.
Happy decorating and happy shopping this holiday season! Make sure to pick up a couple candles from American Home™ by Yankee Candle®.
