(and, if you don't have a mantel, go here to read how she built a faux mantel to solve her mantel-less dilemma!)
Hello all 52 Mantel friends! I'm Jen from Harrison Home and I am so excited that Emily invited me to share an Easter mantel with you today!! I must admit I was a bit intimidated to take on this invitation..I mean really, week after week she continues to amaze us with what she comes up with...but who can say no to her, she is so stinkin' sweet! But on to what you are all here for today, it is Monday right!
I envisioned something clean and simple, so I decided to go with bright whites and crisp greens with a pop of blue for the banner. I also love the bit of shine the polished silver adds.
I was inspired by a set of hanging wooden eggs from Pottery Barn that spelled out EASTER, but at $20...YIKES! So off to Hobby Lobby where I found a set of 8 white wooden eggs for around $4..Then used a black marker to write the letters, small nails hold the white ribbon on for hanging.
For the banner I used scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby in a blue and white chevron pattern, finished the edges with my favorite decorative edger and printed out "RISEN" from a basic font in Microsoft Word. The little votive holders were a set of three in the dollar bin at Target! (although I think they were actually $2.50?) I love the vintage look of them.
The wreath I made using boxwood clippings from my yard and a plain grapevine wreath I already had. I love the color and texture of boxwood's, and the fact that they look just as good dried!
Wow, Jen, your Easter mantel is beautiful, fresh and Springy! I love the bright whites with the natural elements. And, of course, I'm digging the pops of green and blue. I'm totally having some mantel envy right now! Thanks so much for sharing....and for being our 29th mantel!
Come back later today for a very special post dedicated to Easter and Spring mantel features!!
