Easter is almost here! If you’re looking for easter basket ideas for tweens then look no further! I’ve done all the work for you! Your’e welcome. 😉 It’s not too late to run out and grab a few fun things for your tween’s easter basket! We don’t do a lot of presents during the year…
With a change of season comes the need to want to refresh our homes. Today I’m sharing some beautiful spring mantel decor ideas you’ll definitely want to try!
Four fresh spring mantel decor ideas you’ll love!
I’m going to show you four fun and easy ideas for a fresh spring mantel, plus a few other cute ones I found on Pinterest! If you don’t have a fireplace with a mantel don’t despair! You can use these ideas for a table, or on top of a console or piano or even on the wall. The idea is to get creative and add some fun fresh spring flair to brighten up your home!
Idea 1: DIY pampas and fresh flower spring mantel centerpiece.
This pampas floral centerpiece is actually pretty fun and easy to put together. The two pampas stalks are tethered together in the middle with floral wire. The dried lavender and other dried stalks all remain, and I just change out the fresh greenery with each season. For the full tutorial check out my post HERE! I hung the arrangement with fishing line so its basically invisible. This would also be really pretty as a spring table centerpiece.
Idea 2: Mirror with fresh diy garland.
Every spring our wisteria garland that hangs over our pergola blooms in the month of March. Its pretty epic… that is until it starts dropping petals everywhere! Ha! I just clipped a few vines and literally taped it to the mantel with packing tape! If you don’t have wisteria you could clip any vine- no vine? No problem! Clip any branches or greenery in your yard, bundle them together and just tape them on. I swear its a really fun way to add a touch of spring to your mantel! BTW, I am obsessed with this mirror. Find it HERE!
Mirrors are such a great way to add light and dimension to your mantel!
Idea 3: Spring art with greenery.
If you have a fun print or piece of art that has a pretty landscape it can look really pretty with fresh greenery for a spring mantel. Even if you just pop a couple of flowers in a vase or use a potted plant it will make a great POP!
Idea 4: DIY hanging flower mobile.
Okay, this hanging flower mobile was really fun to make! And… soooo easy! We just clipped a branch from the yard and hung farmers market flowers upside down with kitchen twine. I currently have it hanging in my garage so the flowers can fully dry. This is a great example of a creative way you can display flowers instead of the usual vase. I will be posting the full DIY for this soon!
Idea 5: Simple mason jars with fresh spring flowers.
I love ranunculus so much, and basically ALL the spring flowers! You don’t have to spend a lot on decor to dress up your mantel for spring. You can make a big impact with simple inexpensive mason jars or any clear glass jar. I repurpose any jar that I think has a cute shape. This pop of color really makes a statement don’t you think?
Okay now that I’ve showed you my ideas for spring mantel decor I’ll show you some other great images I found on Pinterest!
I love the clean minimal boho look of this mantel decor. The white, the pop of green in the plant and the beautiful pop of white against the black backdrop they created by using the white candles inside the fireplace.
Here’s another example of greenery paired with art. Simple but still really makes a statement.
Okay, If you love floral decor then this spring mantel will take your breath away! Its definitely a spring/easter maximalist vibe, but I’m not mad about it. NO, not one bit.
I love the DIY macrame boho art here. When you’re not using your fireplace this is a great way to brighten up that dark hole!
I love how the ferns are repeated here, even in the art! Simple pops of green but really makes a statement!
The pop of color this turquoise and hot pink make is so fabulous don’t ya think?!
Other ideas for a spring mantel refresh.
- Clean the inside of your fireplace and give it a fresh coat of paint. This is actually on my to-do list!
- Brighten up the inside of the fireplace with white birch logs.
- Tuck green plants inside the fireplace. Make sure to pick ones that can tolerate lower light like snake plants or even the pothos.
- Stagger battery operated candles inside for a nice glow in the warmer months.
- I also like to wrap twinkle lights inside and set them on a timer.
- Place lighting around the outside of the fireplace and your mantel with either salt lamps, twinkle lights, twinkle lights inside a candle votive or lantern and of course you can always use more candles.
- Try adding real or faux (the palms you see in front of my fireplace mantel are faux!) plants in white containers around the outside of your fireplace.
- And of course if your fireplace mantel is on the darker side you could consider brightening it up with a fresh coat of white paint or popping in some fun tile.
