It’s a New Year. Time for a new mantle display. If you can get through the chore of taking down your Christmas decorations, the chance to freshen up your fireplace mantle can make up for it somewhat.
Even though it’s only January, I’m yearning for spring. How about you? I decided what better way to make it feel like spring than to bring a bit of nature indoors? That’s what’s going on with my mantle display. It’s simple. Clean. And, it has fresh touches from nature here and there.
Need some feel good spring-like inspiration for your mantle? Here’s how I got the look.
See those branches and that snippet of greenery? I ran outside in the snow (in my slippers no less) and trimmed those bits from plants in my front yard. The dash of green makes me really happy during this bleak winter.
Pinecones scavenged from my yard look fancy displayed on a tiered tray. (P.S. I made this tiered tray for about $2.)
What do you think of my new mantle display? Do you have any fireplace mantle decorating tips?
