Gwenn Lloyd, Vice President of the Naperville Garden Club, shows some simple steps you can take to decorate your mantel for the holidays using the idea of layers, starting with decorative statues, then adding garland and lights, and finishing with pre-made swags, including ribbons and more pine needles, to help make the mantel more full.

She adds that if you don’t have a fireplace, you can use these tips to decorate any flat surface, including a buffet table.
