Welcome to Our Crafty Mom! I am so excited to share 7 Gorgeous Spring Mantel Ideas with you today! One of the things I love about blogging is I have “met” so many wonderful, crazy talented bloggers! There has been nothing but support and my favorite-collaboration-on projects like these!
Today I will be sharing not only my Spring Mantel-which has a Pottery Barn feel, but also 6 of my blogging friends Spring Mantels! Enjoy!
I try to change up my Spring Mantel every year-mostly because I enjoy it, but also, I tend to get bored if I do the same thing every year. I have always loved Pottery Barn, but frankly, not some of their prices. As a crafter, I always think-I can make that for less! So when I saw all the moss-inspired projects at PB, I knew right away I wanted to create a natural look for my Spring Mantel with moss and burlap. The first thing I did was get to work on a wreath to hang on the mirror above the mantel. How cute is this little guy:
I liked the straw texture of the bunny & just used a bent paperclip to attach him to the foam wreath covered with sheet moss. While I had the moss out, I covered a couple foam balls with moss as well-simply placing them on candle holders.
I had to have the moss bunnies that I picked up for a song at Pier One after Easter last year. I simply placed them in Dollar Store clay pots creating a simple topiary. I added dried hydrangeas for more texture and thought they complimented the moss.
If you’ve visited Our Crafty Mom before, you know I like symmetry on my mantel. I once again used demijohn vases-which I covered with pretty print burlap-to anchor each end. A couple of faux cherry blossom stems give height as well as texture. I am enjoying my new Cricut Air and created the bunny banner in no time! I wanted to include burlap, so just attached the bunnies with double sided tape to a burlap banner. When Easter is over I can still use the burlap banner.
For the hearth I kept my Fairy Garden Chair Planter as it went with the natural moss garden theme. Again sticking with natural elements, I placed a pretty white ironstone pot with a faux boxwood on a chalk-painted crate and lantern.
Here are the links for the other gorgeous mantels pictured above & below. I hope you will visit them & let them know Our Crafty Mom sent you! Have a great day!
