After years of ogling all the pretty spring mantels on Pinterest, I finally created my own Easter Spring Mantel that makes me smile 🙂
I took my inspiration from this year’s Crate and Barrel catalog.I fell in love with the blues, yellows, and pops of orange in their 2015 Easter line. Isn’t it pretty?! There’s just something about this color combination that makes me happy.
Now, I don’t normally change out my mantel for every holiday, but something about the Crate and Barrel Easter colors motivated me to try something different. Here are some of the things I used to pull this mantel together…
Since I wanted a rustic look, I picked up this metal pitcher (I’ve always wanted one of these) and 3 bunches of flowers at Michaels craft store. To bring in some blue into the bouquet, I inserted blue plastic eggs* into the mix and sprinkled more eggs around the mantel.
Tip ~ Stick skewers into the holes on the bottom of a plastic Easter egg and you have an instant egg stick to place into a bouquet of flowers. You can also cover the stick with floral tape, but I wanted a rustic look and kept it plain.
I also picked up a very affordable large 24″ x 36″ rustic looking frame and covered the cardboard backing with burlap*. Then, I found a cute spring quote on Pinterest and used a chalk pen to write it onto the front of the plastic frame cover. Since everything in and on this frame is temporary, I can use the components for another project…I’m thinking a beach theme for summer!
Tip ~ If you have large areas to cover with burlap, buy it off the bolt from Walmart, JoAnns, or fabric store. You can find a yard for around $2, which is so much cheaper than buying it already cut in the craft store.
My Moss Covered Easter Bunnies with coordinating ribbons were also added to each side of the mantel. Aren’t they super cute?
And because I love dollar store felt cut-outs, I had to make a Dollar Store Giant Easter Egg to balance out the pitcher of flowers on the opposite side of the mantel. I love how the colors in the egg pull the mantel colors together.
I hope you liked my Easter Spring Mantel. What colors do you have on your mantel for spring?
