{Light and Bright} Spring Mantel

 
 
Over the weekend, I finally squeezed in some time to spring-ify (yes, it's a word!) our mantel. I am loving how light and bright it turned out. And the best part? I all ready had everything on hand, making it absolutely free! You may recognize a few items up there that were on my Valentine's Mantel. Isn't it nice when you are able to incorporate your favorite décor into every holiday?
 
 
Here's my DIY Spring Pallet Art, sitting all pretty so that everyone can see it! Everytime I look at this piece it puts a big smile on my face.
 
 
This metal pitcher with the burlap label on it caught my eye at JoAnn's {with a 40% off coupon, of course!} and somehow landed in my cart awhile back. Funny how those things happen, huh? I see many future uses for it, and right now it looks just lovely holding a bunch of happy, yellow flowers.
 
 
I'm a big fan of banners. I'm an even bigger fan when I can find cute ones at Target. I bought this one last year and it fits in perfectly with my color scheme. I'm smitten. :)
 
 
I made this Paper Flower Ball Bouquet last month. I shared the tutorial over on Huckleberry Love. It was extremely easy to make and you can customize it to whatever colors you'd like!
 
 
 
This is one of my favorite quotes, so I had to make a printable for it! "My favorite weather is bird chirping weather" ~ Terri Guillemets  Is it your favorite weather, too?
 


 
This old picture frame certainly gets a lot of use in our home. I'm always finding new ways to incorporate it into our décor. This time I hung one of my Coffee filter wreath from it with a big burlap bow. I am making some flowers to pin onto the wreath, but haven't quite finished them yet!




 
And there you have it! My light and bright Spring Mantel is complete! Have you decorated for Spring yet? How's the weather in your neck of the woods? It's going to be in the 70s this week here in Houston and I can't wait! :)
