How to give your mantel a fresh look for Spring

on March 14, 2017

Hi, friends!  Today we’re talking about decorating your mantel for spring and boy are you in for a treat! I’m partnering with my friend Amy of My Life From Home and a few of my talented blogger friends to bring you oodles of ideas and inspiration to get your mantel ready for Spring.

Whether you change your mantel seasonally, or not, if you’re here, you’re looking for a change. Luckily, changing up your mantel can be done quickly and inexpensively. Here is how I change my mantel up for Spring!

Add Flowers

Spring is all about new beginnings for me. To me, flowers represent that. Flowers bring a freshness and energy to any space, including your mantel. Whether you’re using them in your throw pillows, as accents or in your artwork, the color and vibrancy will bring new life to your fireplace!  I like to mix both live and artificial flowers together. This gives the bouquet longevity and texture very inexpensively. I originally used the basket above for our St. Patrick’s Day tablescape. I gave it new life by adding some colorful blooms!



Changing the wall decoration will automatically alter the look of your mantel. This can be done very inexpensively as – the paper quill prints below are greeting cards made by Niquea.D that I picked up at Papyrus, and placed in a floating-frame. You can also find lovely quilled cards on Etsy. Look outside the box for wall decor – wrapping paper, greeting cards and even printables are straightforward and inexpensive ways to change up your look seasonally.

Add Seasonal Accents

These little frosted-glass bunnies say “Easter” and “Spring” without screaming it.

Shop your home

This shabby-chic vintage birdcage moves around my home on a continuous basis, offering something new in each vignette. Look around your house for things that speak to you in your current seasonal frame of mind!

Throws and Pillows

Changing or adding a colorful throw and some floral pillows is an easy way to change up the decor around your fireplace for a fresh and new look!

I hope you’ve found these ideas useful and that I’ve given you some inspiration for your mantel makeover.
