Beachy Mantel

Beachy mantel 2.2

Who decorates their mantel when they should be packing to move? Me! If you know me at all you know how much I love decorating my mantel. I’m going to really miss it, so let’s just say this is it’s last hurrah. And, of course, I did it without spending any money.

I made this Framed Sand Dollar Wall Art a couple years ago. I’ve been meaning to make another one similar to it, but it will have to wait a bit now. One good thing about our move is that I will be 7 hours closer to a beach now.

I won this amazing piece of driftwood at an auction a few years ago. I was the only one who bid on it. Apparently no one else could see the beauty in a big piece of wood found on the edge of a body of water. Lucky me! The shell ball is from our trip to Hawaii.

I love this picture of my kids and their cousins on the beach at Christmas a few years ago. What a wonderful memory!

What can I say about the white ceramic whale? I just love it!

I made this nautical wreath last year by wrapping rope around a styro foam wreath form and tying a sea star on it.

I also made the Map Garland a couple years ago. I love maps and the garland turned out just as good as I thought it would.

I love how beachy it is, but also how subtle it is.

Here’s my Summer Mantel from last year. Oh look, the same wreath!

If I don’t have a mantel in my new house, I’ll be making one. How do you decorate your mantel or shelf for Summer?

    Love the mantel! I have the same whale (from Kohls)…isn’t he the sweetest little figure?

    Hi, just wondering where you got your white ceramic whale from?
    Thanks

    I purchased it at Kohls last Summer.
