Easter Mantle 2017

Does it seem like anyone else that Easter has taken forever to get here this year? 
I kept seeing past Easter pictures in my Timehop and thought it was crazy that Easter seemed so far away!!!

Maybe it's a good thing though because I actually got an Easter mantle up this year and I can count on one hand the times I've actually specifically decorated for Easter. 
Usually I just get Spring up and add in a few eggs for a week or so :) 

Here's my simple little Easter set-up this year...

I wanted it to seem crisp & light with a few natural touches. 

The pink mirror was a $10 Goodwill find that I spruced up with some light pink paint for a party recently. It was the perfect centerpiece!

I've never used pink on the mantle before so I thought it was fun to add in since it'd only be up for a couple weeks. 

The ombre egg banner was a super easy DIY with some wooden eggs I picked up at JoAnns. I got 8 for $2. 
I painted them first with the dark teal and then lightly brushed a lighter aqua over the tops for a fun ombre look. 
They'd be cute strung across a wreath too! 

The cross splatter art was my favorite and was so fun to do!!!

The cross was a DIY project from several years ago that I had originally done with a very rustic look. You can find the tutorial here on how I made it. 

I wanted to lighten things up but didn't want to make a new cross (I know, I know) so I painted it white.
I can always go back and distress it later :) 

I used a bunch of colors I had lying around, wrapped the cross in saran wrap to keep it clean and then just drizzled and splattered the paint all around it until it looked the way I wanted! 
The kids got in on the action too and created some drip art with scraps of wood I had lying around! 

Perfect for a family art activty :) 

The wooden bunny & bird were the only newbies I found and brought in this year (as far as buying things) and I love the lighter distressed wood look they had. 

I basically found the dirtiest, grossest cabinet door in my stash to make this sign, guys. 
I think I've been avoiding it because of how bad it was. 
But I've always hung on to it because I loved the shape & size. 
PLUS it had layers of some light blue paint underneath it's original off-white so I HAD to use it at some point. 

I cleaned and cleaned and cleaned. 
Then I painted it white, splashed a little more blue on it & lightly distressed it. 
Then added my lettering on in a pretty hammered gold. 

Once the big items were situated, I filled in with some smaller things like the bird nests, animals, and then filled out the ends with a couple taller pieces. 

I love the fresh, clean look & the pops of pink!!
Have you guys decorated for Easter this year? 

Hope you guys have a great pre-Easter week and get a chance to love on some family & remember what a blessing this holiday is in light of what our Savior has done for us! 
Love you guys :)

  1. This implies that 메리트카지노 in style on-line poker websites like Bodog or Pokerstars do NOT have a legal on-line presence in Korea. In September 2021, Paradise Company reported revenues of 9.49 billion Korean gained due mainly to heavy restrictions on incoming traffic. Additional measures hampered casino revenues, including social distancing for indoor entertainment venues and the pandemic. However, fuelling the speedy and unprecedented progress in GGR for this South Korean operator and GKL are eased visa entry restrictions through October 31, 2022, courtesy of the South Korean authorities. The playing license a casino operates under will have huge impact|a large impact|a massive effect} in your safety. Not all licenses are equally safe for gamers for the straightforward cause that they are issued by completely different playing authorities that work in several methods and have completely different rules.
