DIY Spring Mantel

I’m s o excited to share with you my newest project.  My DIY Spring Mantel.
Second Chance to Dream:  DIY Spring Mantel
I actually started this project before Drew’s accident so I’m excited to finish it and share it with you today. In January we did a living room redo.  I will be sharing that with you soo I just have a few finishing touches to finish up.  One of the significant changes was painting my red wall, grey.  I’m going with a yellow and grey color scheme so I needed something significant on my mantel.  I LOVE my old window frame because it’s so versatile.  I shared with you my Upcycled Window Pane Flag last summer and I loved it but I like to recycle my decor so I removed the flag and added a wreath.
I had an old wreath that was wrapped with grey yarn and had felt flowers on it.  I loved the wreath, but again, I like to change and recycle my decor so I took off the flowers and decided to wrap it with this cool yellow ribbon.
I found these fun flowers at Michael’s on sale as well as the grey chevron ribbon.  I hot glued the flowers to the wreath.
I used a push pin to attach it to the window frame.
I found these fun vases at Target on clearance for really cheap and added flowers.
I’m lovin’ my new mantel.
I’m pretty sure you’ll see the window pane again with different decor sometime this summer so stay tuned.

  1. […] I purchased a MDF cut out of the State of Michigan from Pick your Plum.  If you’re not familiar with Pick your Plum it’s a daily deal site that has lots of fun products for cheap.  You can check it out on my right hand side bar. Scroll down the page until you see the Pick Your Plum ad.  Anyway,  this deal came up and I new it would make some fun wall art.  I’ll show you had I did it. Supplies you will need: Frame Spray paint for frame, if needed- I used a marigold color Spray paint for state- I used lagoon blue 2 colors of spray paint for the backing- I used grey and white Hot glue gun small piece of red vinyl To begin I spray painted the state with a blue paint and let that dry. I purchased a thin piece of wall board from Menard’s and had my husband cut it into a 16 x 20 size to fit a frame I had.  I spray painted the board white.  Not pictured: I spray painted the frame marigold. I took my chevron Frog Tape and taped off stripes onto my white board. I then spray painted the whole board grey After the paint was dry I peeled off the tape, to reveal my white stripes.  I hot glued the state onto my completed chevron board and cut a red heart out of vinyl at placed it one our home town of Traverse City.  I placed it into my painted frame. And here is my new completed DIY State Wall Art project!  I love it!!  I hung it by my front door which had a big empty space and needed a touch of color.  It goes really well with my new grey and yellow living room.
