Decorating your Fireplace Mantel Shelf for Spring
Posted on Mar 21st 2014
You have chosen, ordered, and installed your fireplace mantel shelf from MantelCraft, now comes the fun part. Decorating it. With spring right around the corner, here is some inspiration to help get you started decorating your fireplace mantel shelf for spring. Flowers, wreaths, banners, and colored eggs can easily turn a plain mantel into a pretty spring showcase -- we tell you how to get the look for each one.
Choose a tranquil color scheme of blue, green, and cream. Hang a boxwood wreath and a large blue plastic egg to a large mirror. Flank the mirror with cream pillar candles on tall glass candlesticks. Vintage bunnies in light blue and cream add to the color scheme, and potted grass completes the simple spring look.
Teal and pink are beautiful color choices for decorating your fireplace mantel shelf for spring. This color combination works best if you have already used shades of teal to decorate year round. Use light blue, green, and pink tinted glass bottles and add handmade cherry blossom branches. Repurpose a wooden plaque sprayed with chalkboard paint to display a spring message. Fill glass apothecary jars with greenery, sticks, and dyed Easter eggs. Complete the display with a small basket containing two glass jars with pink flowers.
If you prefer a very natural look, we suggest this idea. Use an intricate footed bowl and pitcher to hold natural items, such as willow branches and a small bird's nest of tiny faux eggs. Teal bird hooks also rest in the footed bowl and make excellent springtime props and are easy to find this time of year at your local craft store. Sit a beautiful white ceramic bird atop a stack of vintage books. Behind the bowl and pitcher sit a pretty piece of artwork with muted spring colors to complete the vignette.
