Mantel Decor for Spring (and Easter)

I recently took out a few sparkly Easter eggs to display around the house as we prepare to celebrate the holiday.  Since The Lettered Cottage is having a spring mantel link party this week, I thought it would be the perfect time to show the setup of my mantel and it's new sparkle.


Remember the candlesticks from last year?  Well, two of them got a quick update with a little Rub 'n Buff (I buy mine at Hobby Lobby).  I changed the candlestick color from cream to antique gold.... Rub 'n Buff makes updating things around the house so easy, literally rub and buff.  Such a quick and simple update.

Once the candlesticks had dried (less than an hour), I placed them on the mantel and put a pink sparkly egg in each holder... a perfect fit!

I created the large pink painting here and here, added a white ceramic bird (from Target), and clipped a large branch from a tree in my backyard and placed it in an old apple juice glass jar.

That completes the mantel for now..... later this week I'll be adding one more temporary decoration.  If you have a little man in your life who enjoys Star Wars, you'll really want to come back and check it out :)

 I hope you're enjoying spring-like weather!

  2. At first I was a little worried...
    I love the pink, white, black, metallic.
    But not until I scrolled down on your post did I feel so much BETTER that it wasn't just your mantel, but your entire fireplace that was freshened up for Spring with the bright green branches. Beautiful!
