Inexpensive Pink Christmas Mantel Garland

Hello my darling friends! 
This year I wanted to create Pink Christmas mantel that was really full and fluffy using Christmas ornaments and florals!
My challenge was to stay within an affordable budget which can be tricky when you are looking for specific pale pink and white ornaments.
I can tell you that none of the stores in our town had very few affordable ornaments in pale colors.
Soooooooo, I searched high and low for ornaments and guess where I found the best deal on pale white ornaments?
The Dollar Tree!
I found white and gold ornaments and poinsettias, but still no pale pinks.
So, I decided to paint some of the white ornaments and poinsettias with pink paint to get the exact color I wanted!
 I used white acrylic paint with a couple of drops of pink paint.
Then I brushed the paint on the poinsettias,roses and ornaments and sprinkled a layer of fine soft white glitter on all of the painted pieces.
I wired my ornaments and florals onto a white faux evergreen I found at Michael's.
 I also made my stockings using a pink felt stocking and lace overlay!
I just love decorating for Christmas!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Stay tuned for some gorgeous Pink Christmas Holiday Home Tours!

Hugs and sparkles,
