As you can imagine, living in New England we have some pretty cold Winter months. That just makes the start of Spring so much more appreciated! There really is a renewed energy and excitement when March rolls around. Today I am teaming up with some of your favorite home decor bloggers to share our Spring Mantels with you. Hopefully you will be inspired as well! A big thank you to Amy of My Life From Home for hosting this blog hop!

Decorating a mantel is my all time favorite thing to decorate. Tablescapes are my second and I will be sharing my Spring Tablescape next week! Every year I try to change out the decor of the mantel without buying new items. Being a crafter is a huge help, as I enjoy making things and it also saves money. When decorating a mantel it is best to start with a clean slate. Take everything off the mantel, take a look at what items you have and get inspired! It is great to start off with a focal point which helps with the overall design. For example, I started with this gorgeous wreath found here
Next, I anchor each end of the mantel. I kind of like symmetry so I tend to have either the same items at each end or at least the same size. In this case I used the beautiful ironstone pitchers with spring flowers that match the flowers in the wreath. These have quickly become some of my favorite items to decorate with! The adorable bunnies are the perfect height beside the pitchers. You can find them here.
Now I like to take a step back and see what else I need to complete the mantel. Banners are another thing that I use frequently. They add a very homey feel and are so versatile. The linen banner is a nice blend with the neutral theme I have going on. I like to decorate the hearth as well and found this gorgeous bunny pillow at the craft store for 50% off! I seem to have a bunny theme going on without even realizing it. Sometimes things just come together like that! How adorable is this bunny plate also found at the craft store:
