New Spring Mantel

I had a Spring Mantel, but it was mostly pre-Spring and you know I love any excuse to change my mantel. Here’s the items I decided to start with. Of course not everything was used this time, but I like a good selection.

I wanted a more garden-y feel this time. Everything I used is from my decorating stash.

These items were all stored away in my Spring tote.

It’s fun to go through the totes every season or holiday. I always forget what fun things I have stored away.

The bird was actually stored in my decorating/craft area.

I love this hydrangea wreath.

I made the framed nest last Spring. You can check it out here.

Now I just need to come up with a cute bunting to hang from the mantel.

    You created a beautiful spring mantel! I love your hydrangea wreath…very pretty! I also like your clay pot with the wire cloche! But I must say, it is your framed birds nest that caught my eye first! That is just gorgeous…what a grand idea! I may have to borrow that one from you! I just love to decorate with birds and nest during the spring season. Sounds like a great project!!! Thank you so much for sharing this sweet idea and your beautiful mantel with us for Beth’s mantel party!

    Warmest spring wishes,

    I LOVE that gate! So in envy. Want one. LOL The little nests are wonderful. I used stash stuff for my mantel too. Just move things around and change it up! 🙂
