I finally got something done on my mantel this weekend. I haven't had anything on it since Christmas and it has really been bugging me! Part of the reason is I was afraid to put anything up there while we were actually using the fireplace because I have ruined some things since they got too hot.
I just used stuff that I had around the house and threw this together.
I printed the letters on burlap and cut out the banner. I used really small clothespins and jute to complete the banner. This was the first time I printed on burlap and let me tell you, I am hooked! This will not be the last project I do that involves burlap and printing.
I had this lantern outside next to our patio swing all last summer and had a hard time keeping it upright with all the wind here in Kansas, so thought I would bring it inside for now. I took real eggs and pierced the ends so I could blow the egg out and painted them. I had the white metal basket with grass that I have used for centerpieces before.
I just found an old frame and spray painted it white. I had some moss covered rocks that I threw in there.
I had some leftover silk flowers from an outdoor arrangement I did for the patio that I put in this white pitcher. I tied some burlap to it to tie in the banner. I found these fake nests at Hobby Lobby that I thought were so cute!
Our weather has been perfect for spring this week. I am looking forward to more beautiful days! Happy Spring everyone!
