Mantle Re-do for Spring

A few weeks ago, I asked my Facebook friends for ideas on how to redo my mantle for spring.  For the past four years or so, I've been going with the Primitive look but have lately decided it's time to switch over to a more romantic and nostalgic feel.

This is how it looked after I finished taking down everything after Christmas.
I had a brainy idea to paint this metal can white...but that was as far as I got.
I painted the can white a couple of months ago and hung the Easter eggs last month.
Today I finished it up and I love it!  It's hard to get a close up of the whole thing as it's a pretty long mantle and a short distance across the room but you get the idea.
I was so thrilled to have found these blue jars at yard sales this past weekend.  I picked up some cherry blossom branches at Michael's.  It's such a pretty contrast!


  1. Hi Sarah; your mantle is lovely. I need to decorate for Spring, too. Currently I'm spring cleaning and getting rids of loads of stuff I no longer need. It's a great feeling!

  2. Oh my gosh, Sarah, I LOVE your jars!!! They look so adorable!! And I love the pictures of your children--those are so precious!!!

  3. Sarah, I totally love that look...sprigs in jars marching down the mantle and I especially love the children's portraits on top of it. Have a wonderful week and happy Easter. :)

  4. Wow! Real flowers! Looks so springy. Thanks for visiting my blog!



  5. Sarah, your mantel looks lovely. I love the blue jars with the cherry blossoms in them. So spring and fresh looking.

    Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment on my quilt. That was so sweet of you. Have a great week and a Happy Easter!

  6. I ADORE the blue jars and cherry blossoms! Now that I think of it, our mantle is looking pretty blah...might be time to "spring" it up a little bit. :)

  7. What a great idea using those old mason jars!! They are the prettiest shade of blue and perfect for bringing in spring!

  8. You did an awesome job on the mantel, and it looks very pretty!

  9. Hoppy Easter Sarah, Love the look of your mantle, the jars and the cherry blossoms look wonderful together! Hugs Marilou
