This is the first year that I have decorated my mantel for Spring, and I have to say, I adore it! Spring mantel decor seemed a bit much for me until I got started, now I think I’ll be decorating for every season! I usually skip from Christmas/Winter right to Summer, but I have been so inspired by all of the lovely Spring mantels I have seen in the blog world, that I had to do my own!
I started with one of the many white pitchers that my Grandmommy has given me over the years. I cut some forsythia branches from one of my bushes, and trimmed some blooms off of my sweet neighbor’s tree…with her permission, of course.
Next, I added one of my favorite yard sale finds ever. I bought this beautiful little glass cage for 25 cents last year! I put a little moss inside to make a nest, and added some small brown eggs.
I filled this tiny pitcher with lamb’s ear, and added some more moss to the inside of my trifle bowl with some twigs and little pieces of potpourri. The blue bird was given to me by my Grandmommy years ago, and finally has a new home.
Don’t they look like little eggs that have already hatched?
Last, I hung a Spring wreath from a window frame, and added my little yellow boots that I love so much! I had all of these things around my house and yard, it is just amazing what you can do with a little inspiration!
