I love looking at how homes have their mantels decorated. I’m always inspired to have it coordinate w/ the seasons. My inspiration is at the bottom of the post.. My dear friend Kim, is great at updating her mantel, and I love her creative ideas. Up until recently I hadn’t found a combination that I really liked, until my latest one. I love the crisp of white, paired w/ the little touches.
The white mirror was purchased at Hobby Lobby during a week when their mirrors were 50% off.. Score! I want to say it was around $22.95..
The white pitcher & greenery was purchased at HomeGoods. I added the twine from some that I had in my “craft stash”… The letter “B” was from Hobby Lobby, painted it white, sanded a little for a slight distressed touch, and then wrapped a combination of raffia & twine.
This plate was also from Hobby Lobby (around $2), and is a lightweight material, originally gold, but spray painted white. I drew out a 5 (for our family of 5) w/ pencil, then painted w/ black craft paint. The little easel was also gold, and painted white w/ spray paint. Picture frame also from HomeGoods, w/ a picture of my three, sweet monkeys..
Finally put to use three of the baby food jars I’d had saved… A quick coat of white spray paint, and then roughed up a little w/ sand paper.. More twine wrapped around to keep them together. The cream flowers & greenery were clipped from a stemmed bunch also in my craft supplies..
The adorable lantern, and whimsical vase were also from HomeGoods.. This just may be the start to a new addiction. I’ve only been to the store once (about an hour & a 1/2 away), but I loved it!
This is what started the goal for white accessories;
