How to Decorate a Spring Mantel

How do you decorate your mantel for spring and summer? Maybe you don’t decorate it at all and you keep the same decor up year round?  If you’ve been around here a while, you know I’m not about decorating with a lot of fuss or money.  I’ve also got a treat for you because I’ve joined up with a talented group of bloggers to share more mantel and spring inspiration! So let me first share a few tips and tricks on how to decorate a spring mantel.

The first thing to do is gather your supplies. DON’T feel like you need to go buy all new spring home decor.  Look around and take a moment to “shop your house.” I do this all the time and you would be surprised at how easy it is to re create a space with a few decor pieces that you already own.

There are a few key tips to creating a visually appealing mantel, all of which I’ve summed up in this post {HERE}.

In order to gather up your decor pieces you’re going to need an idea of what you need. I’ve made a quick list below:

  • A large piece for the center of the mantel
  • greenery of your choice
  • varying heights of decor pieces
  • varying textures and colors

Since this will be for a spring mantel, obviously you want items that will reflect this.

In my normal fashion, I found a few great items at the Target Dollar Spot a few years ago that I’m excited to finally use.

This sign was one of those finds from a year ago.

I decided to use my old chippy window as the center piece and add the rest of the decor pieces around it.

Also, you are so smart to place the succulents around the mantel – love that idea. The sign is a perfect message for the season. Hugs and Happy Spring! ~ Vicki and Jenn

  2. Lindsey, your Spring mantel is perfect! The combination of chippy white woods and white accents sparked by the galvanized containers and greenery is fresh and definitely Spring!

  3. I am totally bananas for your chippy window, Lindsey, it’s fantastic. I love how you mixed it with the rustic containers, the succulents, and the lavender too. It’s everything spring should be – perfection! Hope you have a fabulous weekend, CoCo

  4. I just love old chippy windows and I love how your mantel came together with the pops of natural elements in the greenery and wood. I adore the stripes on your sugar mold too. Happy Spring, Lindsey!

  5. Very nice! Unfortunately our fireplace is stone to the ceiling and doesn’t have a mantle. But these are good ideas for our antique buffet which I use as a display area.

    I’ve pinned your post. 🙂

  6. I love that mantel. Seriously cute and you are so creative. I especially love that you’ve inspired me to do something with that sugar mold I have had sitting in my closet for years. I liked it back when our decor was more rustic but now…yippee – it’s going all modern farmhouse soon! Thanks!

  9. Your mantel is lovely. The old books caught my eye when I saw your link on Pitstop. I love repurposing things and shopping my house. Then sometimes i will buy one thing to complete the look I am going for.

  10. Totally crushin’ on the lavender and succulents, and that chippy window! I would love for you to come over and link up at Thursday Favorite Things. Leave a comment and I will feature you next week! This post would also be great for The Spring And Easter Joys link that will be going on all weekend. Have a great Easter!
