Easter Mantel

Happy Monday, friends! Today I'm sharing my super quick Easter mantel with you. Honestly, I'm pretty proud of myself for getting an Easter mantel up at all this year. Last year's mantels totally did me in and I was tempted to leave my Christmas mantel up for the entire year! ;)

And, in more honesty, this Monday is not hitting on all cylinders for me. Returning from vacation and getting back into a routine is always a challenge! I had a wonderful Italian vacation and I will definitely share pictures with you...just as soon as I upload, sort and edit all 1000+ of them. (Gulp).

Remember before my vacay I shared a DIY moss bunny tutorial? One of those moss bunnies ended up on my front door wreath and one is on this Easter mantel. I decided to quickly layer some textural items (scrap wood, shutters) in front of my mirror (because, let's face it, sometimes I get tired of looking at the same ol' mirror) and display the moss bunny with letters spelling out "HOP".

The anthropologie knock-off "H" is from my laundry room (as part of WASH) and the tutorial is here.

The metal "O" is a flea market find.

The "P" is written on a chalkboard tray with chalk (obviously, right?!)

The final element of my Easter mantel is a large vase with my leftover moss, kraft paper filler, a candle and speckled Easter eggs from Walmart. Easy as can be!

Below are Spring and Easter mantels from last year:

Okay, I'd better go work on uploading some Italy pictures now. Wish me luck!
