Summer Mantel Decorating Ideas

Welcome to Our Crafty Mom!  One of my favorite spots to decorate is my mantel. It is something I really look forward to updating with each Season. Of course, I try to mix it up every time as well. Today you are in for a treat! I am teaming up with some of your favorite Home Decor Bloggers to share our Summer Mantels.

There is so much inspiration and even if you don’t have a mantel, you can utilize these ideas on a shelf or even a buffet or table. A huge thank you to Amy of My Life From Home for organizing this fun blog hop.

I am going for a coastal or beachy feel and nothing says that more to me than starfish. I love how pretty the large starfish look hanging from the DIY vases that I recently shared here.  One thing that I really enjoy having in my home as often as possible are fresh flowers. If I can get them from my own yard that is even better! This year the rhododendrums are absolutely stunning! I snipped a few to add to the vases and the contrast against the blue is just lovely!

I flipped over the Spring Banner and painted Summer on the other side. I always use both sides of an item. It saves storage as well! I hot glued a few shells and starfish to the banner continuing with the beach theme.

The coral was a find at Kohl’s last year! Sometimes you can find pieces in the most unexpected places. The blue votive holders are the same shade as the bottles-a happy thrifting find!

I added faux hydrangeas, starfish and shells to my Spring Wreath for an easy update.

Your mantel looks beautiful! You have a such great eye for colors and decor. Great idea to do a double banner for spring & summer. Love it!

Love your mantel. The vases are my favorite colors, I think I often use it year round except for holidays. Great beachy look, clever use of the star fish in the frame with the florals.
