Easter Mantel

Easter Mantel - Take Two!  I some how deleted the first post I did - so this is going to read quite different from the original post! 

I went a little Easter Egg Crazy with my mantel this year. 

I made the Egg Garland from a piece of greenery I bought for $6.99, a spring garland I purchased at Joann Fabrics (with coupon I paid about $4.00 for it) some eggs I had with hanging ribbons already attached and some fishing line. 

I cut up the greenery and the garland and used the wire from ends of each piece to wind together until I had one long piece.  I tied the eggs on with fishing line instead of having the ribbon over the top of half the greenery - they just hung nicer this way and used 3M hooks to hang it.

I found these two bunnies at Stein Mart - they spoke to me!!  I had the various sized Easter Eggs to place around and added one of my favorite spring flowers, a hyacinth. 

At the other end I used my church bird house, some potted grass, more eggs and 3 pillar candles.  I wrapped some brown twine around my candles because it reminded me of a crown of thorns.  Topped it all of with my pastel words - EASTER EGGS! and walla!  my Easter Mantel

Wishing you an Eggsellent Easter!  Thanks for hopping by!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.


  1. I love your Easter decor it has a cool shabby chic look!

  2. Thanks Alicia! I had fun putting this together - the bunnies just called out to me in the store!
