2013 Spring Mantel

Today I want to share my spring mantel with you.


For my spring mantel I just wanted to add a touch of color so I chose green.
I took down the owls that I used for my winter mantel which you can see here.
I found some pretty white ceramic birds at Michael's so I went with a green, bird, birdhouse type theme.
Here are more pictures.
I added some curled green paper to my rolled flower topiary basket.
Here are the ceramic birds that I bought at Michael's.
I made a yarn wrapped "O" for my HOME letters.
I painted a wooden birdhouse white and it is just sitting in the middle of the wreath.
For the wreath, I just wrapped this Gilt Eyelash yarn in the color Key Lime around this wreath form.
I added some greenery to my swag that is tied to the top of my faux window.
I painted these two small wooden birdhouses from Michael's. I painted them ivory and soft apple.
I added some soft green flowers from Hobby Lobby to my white milk glass vase.
Here is my YouTube video tour of my mantel and other home decor around the house.
All this week on my blog, I will share my other decor/projects with you but you can go ahead and see it all in the attached video.
Thank you for looking.
