Easter Mantle

Easter is another really fun holiday to decorate for. There is just something whimsical about bunnies and chicks. I’ve had the best time changing the decorations on my Mantle, the Valentine’s Mantle and St. Patrick’s Day Mantle were the latest two that I shared.

Today I’m sharing my most recent, Easter Mantle.

 

Once again, I’ve done a step-by-step tutorial for you…

 

  1. I started with a cute piece of fabric that has chicks and bunnies on it
  2. Then I layered some Easter grass
  3. At one end I put the largest ceramic bunny
  4. And to balance it, one at the other end

 

  1. Then a medium to large bunny in the middle
  2. A medium size bunny added
  3. And on the other end, a smaller bunny and a cute chick. I really wanted to use the chick, but it’s cone shape and wouldn’t stand up, so I put it in a small vase
  4. And then filled grass around it to hide the vase

 

  1. Fill in with smaller pieces, like this little duck
  2. A little plaque and ceramic bunny
  3. Then I added some bright colored plastic eggs
  4. And more eggs

 

I just had to share a picture of my helper, Kali. She was so interested in what I was doing. And guess what I found out? Kali has a secret admirer!

Another no cost decorating project :) Gotta love that

What’s your favorite Easter decoration?

    How cute! I love it. I still have my fall mantle up and have been thinking of ways to get an Easter/Spring mantle. Most of the room is neutrals and espresso brown so it’s hard to work “springy” ideas in there… any suggestions?

  12. Jennifer says:

    It is SO pretty!! I love the blue grass you put on the fabric… so SPRINGY! :)

    I love Easter decorations. All the pastels are so pretty and cheerful.

    Also, I love your cat! She looks like a cross between our two cats. We have a black & gray striped cat and a dark calico (oddly enough they came from the same litter). Anyway, just wanted you to know that I think Kali is a real cutie!

  25. Patricia says:

    Love your Easter mantle. I haven’t decorated for Easter for a couple of years…this might have just encouraged me to dust off my decorations. My favorite decoration is a felted bunny that my MIL gave me. She’s so cute and about 2 feet tall.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.
