I’ve lived in this house, with this mantel, for 8 years, and the only time I’ve ever decorated it is for Christmas. Every Christmas, it’s looked the exact same, and fairly boring at that.
I’m honestly a little intimidated about decorating my mantel for different holidays, mainly because I have no idea what I’m doing. I look at images in magazines and on blogs and am always amazed by how people have an eye for this sort of thing. I don’t, but I thought I’d step out of my comfort zone, and collect together all the things I’ve been storing in my basement, and try to put together a little vintage collection for Easter.
That little crate was made with old Melissa and Doug toy packaging, and a spray painted egg carton. Check out how I used them for another Easter decoration!
I centered the whole mantel around this upcycled frame that I used a new distressing technique on. Check out how I painted the bead board and made the cross here.
