How To Decorate a Mantle for Spring

Spring is one of my favorite times of the year!

The melting of snow, chirping birds, flowers popping up from their winter sleep…

Now is the time I can open the windows, put away the winter blankets and throws and…

decorate my mantle for spring!

Setting for Four: How to Decorate a Mantle for Spring - Tips  #spring #decor

Pin It 

My spring mantle starts off with this large, faceted Homesense mirror- it really makes a beautiful focal point to the room!  These mercury glass votives and candlesticks make the green accents pop!

There’s my hub’s pewter mug again – filled with dried boxwood from my yard.  Crystal votives add sparkle and my Moss Balls (these are so easy to make!) add some spring texture:

Flowers are always a great element to add to your mantle décor.

Yellow tulips with some branches from my yard:

These large faux topiary spheres add another touch of spring greenery and I love their texture too!

When decorating a mantle I love to have some of the accents placed in front of the others to add some depth; this topiary sphere sits in front of the candlestick and vase of flowers:

Here’s a project on my to-do list: Paint the fireplace surround white!

Hmm….what should I do with the beige tile??  Opinions please!!

  15. Love your mantel! This is TOTALLY wacky, but I recently saw someone had a mirrored area where your tile is on the fireplace. I'm not sure how they did it, but I know you can cut mirrors to size so perhaps you could cut mirrors to fit. It would look totally glam with the white painted trim, and I know you like some sparkle!
