Spring Mantel Done in Blue and Yellow

Spring is in the air and I am so happy to finally see it here.  It seems like this has been the longest winter for us even though we did not have the mounds of snow and sub-zero temps that many of you had.    So, to celebrate this I put together a pretty blue and yellow Spring Mantel. I love how it brings so much color and cheerfulness to this room.

 This was really one of the easiest mantels I have ever done. This mantel was put together with several simple DIY projects I did.  First of all is the yellow fabric rag wreath you see in the center.  This wreath I actually made a couple years ago with some fabric I had on hand after another project I had done.  It is a simple wreath to make and can be done in an afternoon of watching your favorite movies.  I love how bright and cheerful it is.  It can be done with any fabric and changed up for any season.  The instructions for it are here

Next are the bottles that hold the faux forsythia stems.  I simply used 4 different colors of craft paint to paint these bottles.  It's a very simple project that I did using bottles I had saved and picked up at the dollar store.  You can find the instructions to do these here.    I placed five bottles on the right side of the mantel and four on the left.  I like doing things unevenly.  It gives the mantel more interest.

In the center of the mantel is a little chalkboard easel that I made with the new Chalk Couture chalk pastes I shared with you last week. I found the little easel at the Target Dollar Spot a couple years ago and just erase it and reuse it for different areas of our home.  And now, with the easy Chalk Couture process, I can have perfectly made chalkboards that take just minutes instead of hours to make.   This is such an easy way to make beautiful and interesting chalkboards and everyone turns out perfectly.  I love using this and you will be seeing a lot more of it here in the future.

So, here is our cheery Spring Mantel in my favorite colors.  I love coming into the room and seeing it - it brings a smile each and every time.   Has Spring arrived in your home yet or are you still in the throws of winter temps and snow?  I love hearing from you so tell me about it in the comments below.

  2. Saw this on the Spring and Easter Blog Hop. I have never liked yellow. It's because growing up my mother had a yellow and white kitchen in all 6 houses. UGH. But seeing your mantel has changed my mind. Not all yellow is bad! I just got some blue bottles so I guess it's back to Hobby Lobby for some yellow stems! Thanks for the inspiration. Happy Easter!
