SPRING {Mantle}

Pin It
My  mantle has been looking very sad for.....well, a long time.

I don't know why, but I'm kind of unmotivated to do anything with it. 

I finally got sick of how it was looking, and gave it a spring-y overhaul!

Here's the final result:



I'm loooooving my two new vases that I *made* myself!




I'm not a big faux-liage kind of person, so I tried to go with stuff that looked kind of realistic.  

I'm liking this little bunch of stuff:

Want to know how to MAKE your own milk glass vase?  Stay tuned!



I made these cute little "moss balls" and put them on my white candlesticks I already had.

I went with really earthy looking moss.




I also made this little sign; it was a different color and said something else.  
I re-purposed it!



Overall, I'm liking all the white and brightness it brings into my brown living room!


Linking up here!

ps-I was totally inspired by Layla's mantle....check it out here!

  21. I have been looking for spring mantle ideas and was delighted to find yours. Love it! I especially love how you incorporated the picture of the Savior in your design. I have a similar picture on my mantle and I wanted to keep it there but still have a spring theme. Thank you so much!
