Hey everyone I hope you had a great weekend, and for all you mamas out there, hope you had a happy Mother’s Day too! I got a few things accomplished and that was nice, and one of them included taking down the Spring/Easter mantel and creating a new summer mantel. And I loooooove how it came out!
I wanted to go with a beachy look this year with shades of aqua and the good news is that I already had everything. Except the driftwood which I picked up in Alabama. Oh, and I did buy the rope ball at Target for $5.
I love it up here! You can also spy my aqua painted mason jar up there too. That rope net thing around it was something I kept a long time ago and some decorative balls came in it, I think.
I already had the old antique window and used it for my Fall mantel last year as a backdrop, but this time I just turned it on its side, and made a simple shell wreath to hang on it.
I just wove some pretty ribbon in and out of the wreath form and glued on some seashells. Really couldn’t have been any easier and I love how it turned out.
I love the driftwood and the natural element it brings.
Now here’s just a few more pretty shots. :)
And that’s a wrap! I really am thrilled with how it came out. You can see last year’s summer mantel here. I loved it a lot too! :)
What do you think? Are you ready for summer? Or at least ready for the beach? I am! :) Sharing this post at Sarah’s Before and After Party.
