(WTNH) - Lifestyle expert Mar Jennings gives us some great holiday decorating ideas from his home in Westport.
Today he showed us how to create a fireplace mantel to marvel over. By adding glass over your existing mantel, you can add several inches in width and length, giving you a larger area to decorate.
Here is how to do it:
1. Measure your existing fireplace mantel.
2. Add two to three inches to the width and length.
3. Go to the local glass shop to get a piece of glass cut. They can usually cut it to size for less than $100.
Watch Good Morning Connecticut Weekend for a new tip from Mar every Saturday and Sunday until Christmas is here!
