DIY Holiday Crafts with Rocks and Paper
Paper falls like snow above this fireplace. To get the look, cut a scalloped-edge template from a strip of 4" wide paper that measures a few inches longer than your mantel. Clip four paper strips beneath the template to cut multiples. Repeat until you have enough to cover surface. Secure first strip to bottom of wall with double-sided tape. Continue up, overlapping so scallops alternate.For instructions on making the gift wrap shown on the mantel and in the fireplace, click the link below.
