Elegant Spring Mantel
I am SO ready for spring, and I am excited to be participating in a large blog hop and sharing our spring mantels.
Last year, I updated our living room and added dark navy walls and a moody floral. My normal Easter decor didn’t quite fit in the space anymore, so I created new decor, DIY style!
For this spring mantel, I used:
- Faux Silver Dollar Eucalyptus (IKEA)
- Paintable Easter Eggs (Walmart)
- Acrylic Paint
- Glass Candlesticks (Dollar Tree)
- Gold Spray Paint
- Fresh Flowers (Trader Joes)
I began by lining my mantel with faux Eucalyptus I found at our local IKEA. I did not remove the stem because I want to use this faux eucalyptus for future flower arrangements
Next, I painted my eggs to match my decor. I have floral art hanging above my fireplace, and I selected three colors from the photograph (I ended up replaced the metallic bronze color with a pale lavender but forgot to update the photo).
I found some DIY easter eggs at Walmart, and I painted 24 eggs using acrylic paint.
My candlesticks are clear glass candlesticks I found at The Dollar Tree and painted gold (I used them last fall in my Give Thanks tablescape which you can see HERE). Then I added some pretty little lavender flowers I found at Trader Joes, and my spring mantel was complete!
The mantel decor is elegant yet simple – just what I like! My six-year-old daughter doesn’t love the color scheme since it doesn’t look Easter enough, but it is perfect for now.
Today some of my friends are sharing their beautiful and inspiring Spring mantel decor or a Spring vignette. Hop over to see what they are sharing…
