March means that spring is just within reach and if you are like me you can’t wait to embrace the longer hours of daylight, start anew and refresh your space to reflect the change in seasons. I am officially over the cold weather and so ready for spring! However, it doesn’t seem like Mother Nature is ready to cooperate, but I couldn’t wait any longer and decided to decorate for spring.
I teamed up with Oriental Trading to show you how to decorate your mantel for spring and make some beautiful DIY crafts that will freshen things up in an instant.
The mantel is often the focal point of the living room and the perfect spot to decorate for each season. Make a statement this spring with colorful blooms, whitewashed terra cotta pots and a trio of DIY spring embroidery hoop wreaths.
How to Decorate Your Mantel for Spring
Bring Spring inside with colorful blooms. Flowers signal new beginnings and a fresh start, adding them to your mantel will instantly make it feel like spring.
Add Natural Elements
Natural colors and textures are a nod to the rebirth and growth of the season. Add natural woven baskets, bird’s nests, greenery, and moss. Use garden inspired DIY whitewashed terra cotta pots to highlight these natural elements and add a subtle pop of color.
Embrace the Rule of Three
The “Rule of Three” is simply a guideline that suggests arranging decor in odd number makes it more visually appealing to the human eye. Groupings of items in odd numbers, like these DIY Spring Embroidery Hoop Wreaths, tend to look dynamic and more natural creating a visually appealing focal point.
Mix Up Materials
Make sure you layer in different types of materials. Hang a fabric banner to soften the decor, display printables in a colorful frame, or add hand-painted speckled Easter eggs to help transition your mantel from spring to Easter with ease.
