Spring Mantel 5 ways

Take a look at these different versions of the Spring mantel. I used the same pieces in each, just left out a few. Which version do you prefer?

Putting together a Spring mantel was not high priority this year. We were still painting, and things were pretty much a mess, but I finally got my mantel groove on.Spring mantel 12

For fresh greenery, I bought some outdoor plants at Lowe’s, figuring I’d plant them outside later and collected things from around the house and my hoard stash in the basement. I arranged and rearranged and felt pretty good about it, then the husband, Bill, said, “is that how you’re leaving it? It looks like too much stuff.” Really? I liked it, but was willing to make it less busy.

By moving the plants closer to the sign, removing and rearranging, I created a slightly different look in each version.

I like the pink african violets and birds in the center.

Do you have a favorite yet?

The one that we liked was #4. Enough stuff for me but not too much for him.

I had my first experience using a sawzall when I made the pallet sign  Smile  and won the cute ceramic birds in a blog giveaway.

This curly plant is Big Twister Rush.

You can see how the stems curl and twist. It’s a pretty and unique plant and looks good in the tureen.


The color and freshness of the plants give the mantel a real Spring feel.


This columbine is Winky Double Rose and White.

The white chalkboard planter came from a thrift shop and all the silver pieces were collected from yardsales and thrift shops.

Welcome Spring, even though it’s still a bit chilly, I’m glad you’re here!

 This new color in our family room is so easy to work with and I’m loving it!

On Saturday I’m going to an ASCP workshop! I’m so excited! 

I’ll soon be sharing how I made the pallet sign.

  1. I like them all, but since I have been decluttering around here myself, I really like #4 as well.

  2. I like them all, Debbie! I think it’s because that sign is such a great backdrop for whatever you put up there!

  3. I think you picked the perfect one! I love the barnwood sign next to the pink flowers. Great combination. I don’t have a mantel (yet) so I’m loving seeing yours! :-)


  4. I LOVE your spring mantle and I can’t wait to see the whole room! I love the first picture best! However they ALL are lovely! I just saw your chalk paint post too! Did you get it locally or order online? I have been dying to try it!! :)

  5. I love them all and my favorite was #4 as well. You room is looking so fresh. Your did a beautiful job on the sign too, perfect for the upcoming sunny days.

  6. Love them all! But, I like the unfussiness of the first one the very best! Gorgeous!

  7. Wow! I loved #2 & #3, especially the vintage teapots. This is gorgeous!

  8. Beautiful! Love the versatility of it! I love being able to switch things around as the mood strikes.

  9. Debbie, I’m loving #4 also. I featured my friends’ mantle in January first with unpolished silver and the second time with it shiny. I loved it both ways. Patina works for me! :) Thanks, Helen

  10. Just found your Linky Follower and am your newest follower. Please visit and follow me, too. Thanks, Helen

  11. Oh boy! This is really hard because I love them all. Everything is so springy, colourful, and beautiful. I would love it if you could share this wonderful post at our WIW linky party. Hope to see you there.
