How does this swag attach to the mantel
Also looking a wreath--both very expensive hope they are as beautiful as on line
The swag is truly gorgeous and extremely lush, i.e., heavy. There are no "anchors" per se that you could grab onto to hold it on the mantel. Over the years, as a professional designer myself, I've learned to take the swag and bend the end branches themselves just enough that I've yet to have a problem with it staying in place. By bending the ends I mean, inwards toward the wall rather than facing out. I have three different ones and use the same method on all of them with good results. If worse comes to worse, you can always take a small piece of green floral wire, wrap it securely around several end branches (the swags are more than thick enough) and then attach that wire to a small, discretely placed finishing nail placed underneath the mantle or on the side of it and anchor it there with no one the wiser and not doing any damage to the mantel itself. If the branches separate too much by doing this, I've just put another companion ornament at each end to help weigh it down. If you want to "drape" it down the front on your mantel you most definitely will need something to hold it in place due to its shear weight. Fishing tackle is an excellent choice as it is clear and can hold the pressure but again, a small screw eye hook or a nail hidden inconspicuously on the mantel would be your best bet. In any case, Frontgate's products are more than worth the small effort involved. The quality more than matches the price and they make a significant "statement" wherever you place them.
