With each new holiday and/or season comes a freshly decorated mantel in my home! The mantel was rather barren between Christmas & Easter. Hubby requested a break from the bright, busy mantels. I personally love a decorated mantel but hubby has to look at it too so I honoured his request. I was excited for the beginning of April so I could officially decorate it again! I used a number of items from around my home (I’m sure you recognize the apothecary jar by now!) as well as purchased a few new items. I’ve never had an Easter mantel before so it was fun to find some new items.
I added a few handmade touches to this mantel. You will find tutorials below for the two garlands you see on the mantel: the plastic eggs strung around the mirror and the decorated felt eggs hung below. Unlike Holly and her green thumb, I’m not capable of maintaining real flowers in my home, otherwise I would have included them on my mantel. If you would love to add some real flowers such as daffodils to your Easter mantel, check out her 5-Minute Easter Centerpiece.
