Easter Mantle 2104: Ready For Spring

Easter mantle decorations
I’m pretty excited to be writing this post today.. I am showing you my Easter Mantle for 2014 and you know what that means?

SPRING IS HERE!!

Although the weather has been pretty good in Northern California, it is nice for spring to ‘officially’ be here since that means school is wrapping up, spring sports are starting and we are just that much closer to summer.

So in celebration of the start of spring.. I present my Easter mantle for 2014 (or at least one of them):  Of course at the heart of it is our pom pom trees.. They are still one of my favorite craft projects I have done with my girls:

And since I was on a pom pom kick, I added a garland too.  I just strung them on a thread using a needle.  This one garland used one dollar store bag (80) pom poms.

I used three baskets I picked up at the dollar store and filled them with different types of eggs.
 Normally I like more variations in height with my mantle decorations, but in this case I liked the symmetry of the two baskets on the ends:

The left side features my spray-painted-easter-bean covered eggs.

The middle basket was filled with plain old plastic eggs and the right hand side had some decoupage paper mâché eggs I picked up on clearance last easter.

I had this cute embroidered sign that I propped up on an easel. I’m not sure where I got it.  It may have been a gift from my mom a long time ago.  (One of the problems you have when you get so much Easter stuff.. you can’t remember where some of it came from!)

I hung my coffee filter wreath I made for St. Patrick’s day two years ago. I have been hanging it outside the sun and it has bleached back to white.  The glittered sign is from the dollar store:

On the hearth I added a crate I found at the thrift store and an Ikea lantern:

I had another dollar store basket, again filled with eggs and a thrift store rabbit.  (I don’t love the paint job on the rabbit, and wanted to spray paint him, but the girls love that “she” has eyelashes, so I left him alone):Bunny with eggs

It isn’t the biggest or flashiest mantle, but it reminds me of spring.

  2. These are super cute! I just picked up pom poms from Target's $1 bins today because my daughter loves them...but I didn't really have a plan in mind for them. Now I do!

  8. Cute, cute, cute! I am so bad about the decor for spring holidays. I always feel it doesn't really go with the rest of my decor, so I ignore it until September when I go all out with mantels and everything else for fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

  10. I hear you.. It also feels like the smaller holidays come and go so fast that you do all the work to get up your decorations just to take them down.. the 'big' winter holidays feel like they last longer!
