Floral and Greenery Spring Mantel

Floral and Greenery Spring Mantel


Floral and Greenery Spring Mantel- decorate your home with farmhouse spring charm using faux greenery, faux lavender and a branch from your yard!

With all of the Spring plant posts
I've done lately, 


I'm going to be the crazy plant lady!
I can't help it.
After a long winter, I love filling my 
home with green and life.
Or at least plants that look alive!


Floral and Greenery Spring Mantel- decorate your home with farmhouse spring charm using faux greenery, faux lavender and a branch from your yard!


Inspired by a display I saw at a local market,
I decided to add some greenery, faux lavender
and hanging watering cans to my mantel for spring.




I bought some mini watering cans from Hobby Lobby.
They looked too new,
 so I distressed them a bit by wiping  
a bit of brown, white and black craft paint
on them with a paper towel.




I made a chicken wire message board years ago
(so long ago that the photos are terrible)
from hardware store chicken wire and 
canvas frame stretchers.




I used a garland from Hobby lobby to drape
over the top of my mantel.
It is held in place with push pins.




At the top, I used a branch from my 
yard, hung with clear command hooks.




I hung the watering cans with cotton twine.




I filled the watering cans with faux lavender.





 I bought this Spring metal sign.




To antique it a bit,
I sprayed it with textured spray paint.
I used little metal clips to
attach it to the chicken wire.



A fun mantel for Spring!
