I always want to add a little something extra to my fireplace mantle each holiday season. This is the perfect balance of sparkle and fiber :)

Note: This mantle garland would be a lovely year-round addition with any of the color combinations available in the products below :)

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

2 7' lengths of sari yarn, 4 tassel pairs, 11 crystal pendants (or other focal of your choice)

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Lay out your design.
  Step 2:
Tie together your tassel pairs.
  Step 3:
Begin by tying your 2 strands of sari together in the middle using a simple overhand knot. String on a crystal pendant up to the knot. Tie another knot, securing the pendant in place. Use this method for all crystal pendants.
To tie the tassel pairs in place, use the thread from the tassel loops and the sari together to create a knot. A little bit of adhesive is a good idea once you are all done.
  Step 4:
The overall length of the garland is 7'. From pendant end to pendant end it is 4'8".
