This is a recap of my spring mantel that I did last year. I didn't keep it up very long and I loved seeing the butterflies, faux forsythias and soothing yellows. I created this look because I wanted something light and airy with a nature theme. I was inspired by a butterfly stand I had gotten on clearance for $9.99 at Pier1. At the time I didn't know what I was going to do with it. It wasn't purple and really didn't "go" with anything in my home. I just couldn't pass up the bargain price since it was originally $39.99.
Thinking about ideas to decorate the mantel, I decided on a "butterfly theme" for spring. I simple cut out butterfly shapes I found on the internet onto poster board and glued yellow printed paper on top. I made the butterflies in three different shapes and folded them in the middle as if they were "flying".
Adding faux forsythias and a boxwood kept to the light and airy theme.
And of course, I love the natural light shinning through the windows!
It's been a cold and harsh winter and all the yellow and butterflies really brightens the atmosphere in my home while uplifting my spirits.
Until next time . .
Take a little time to enjoy!
