How To Decorate A Mantel For Spring

2 Mins read

When you think of spring, what comes to mind? For me, spring means warmer temps, open windows, cleaning and organizing and new decorating!!! Spring makes me yearning for the house to be lighter and brighter. I am a cleaning and organizing fool and can’t wait to rid the house of clutter and clean what is left. In the blogging world, we start thinking about spring very early. Today, I am joining my blogging friends to bring you a post all about how to decorate a mantel for spring.

How to decorate a mantel for spring easily always starts by removing everything that is on the mantel. There is too much “noise” when you try to redecorate around things that are already in the space you want to decorate. Start with a clean slate. It will look fresh and new to you once you redecorate this way.

The mantel in our living room is small. We turned an old box on its side and hung it on the wall above the sofa to create the illusion of a mantel.

The DIY Architectural Map we made is full of pretty spring colors so it is the perfect backdrop for a spring mantel.

The mantel is always first when I redecorate for a new season or holiday, but it quickly spills over to the rest of the living room. A box tray made from scrap wood is a great foundation for adding spring touches to. Bunnies, nests, greenery and spring candles were all this coffee table needed for spring. 

The throw pillows got changed, the coffee table got rearranged and I bring out the lighter and brighter throw blankets. It is amazing how changing pillows and throws can really change the look of a room. It doesn’t have to be difficult or cost a lot to redecorate for a new season. Reuse what you have in different ways and your space will feel refreshed and new!

I added Target Hot Spot cupcake stands and clearance Easter pieces to the mantel. I also laid down a wood bead garland. They are versatile, go with all styles and add another layer to the decor. I made the mossy eggs from wooden Target Hot Spot eggs, moss and glue. I will post this easy craft next week.

An architectural piece and green bottle I scored at a yard sale round out the mantel. The hydrangeas were from last year!!!

I think I say this with every season, but I like changing things up for spring. I get bored easily and redecorating makes things look new, refreshed and brighter. Spring really puts me in the purging mood too. With all the organizing going on, things feel more open, spaces feel bigger and I don’t feel bogged down with too much stuff in the house. It is a win-win all around.
