Well I had been avoiding decorating our mantel since it is a little awkward. We have a wood burning stove in front of it. A must have here in chilly Northern Cali but it makes for some challenges. Well I decided to go ahead and make it festive for Spring and here is what I did. First I needed a focal point. I made this inexpensive piece of art.
|What you need:
Decorative Scrapbook Paper, silver paper cake plate, cookie cutters for Spring, and ribbon.
I used hot glue to attach everthing.
|A mess I know it’s screaming help me…..
PS hate the gate but absolutely necessary with a toddler.
Not my best work but much more bright and festive for Spring. After I used the
cookie cutters to trace for my art work I tied them with twine to the
ribbon and turned them into garland. Then I added some Easter lanterns and other items
I had on hand. Now for a big redo, we are installing hardwood floors this weekend!!!
Wish me luck. I will be sure to share my before and afters.
Happy Spring Everyone!
