Simple Easter Mantel



 It always makes me sad when Easter comes so early in the year. I feel like we don't truly get the chance to enjoy the spring decorations. It is so much fun to decorate with cute little chicks and bunnies and I am sad they are going to go away all to soon.

Since I absolutely loved my St. Patrick's Day mantel this year, I waited until the last second to take it down, which means that my Easter mantel won't be up very long at all. I didn't want to spend tons of money on decorations for a few weeks, so I decided to go for items mostly from the dollar store and it actually ended up turning out pretty fab.


 The whole window was something I already had on hand and love using for my different mantels. Look at flea markets and thrift stores to find one. If you do find one, snatch it up because they go very fast! Dress it up with a different wreath and it can be for any holiday. The Easter Egg wreath came from Michaels but almost everything else came from my local dollar tree.


 Two glass vases filled with Easter eggs and flowers. Two darling wooden chicks and to add some height but not price, I bought two garden trellis pieces from the dollar store and then spray painted them pink.

All in all this mantel cost me about $10 plus the wreath and window which I had on hand. No too shabby!


Do you decorate for Easter?

I love the use of the plastic eggs in your vases, very colorful! The whole thing looks so festive :) I only wish I had a mantle to decorate each season/holiday.

These are so sweet! I love the glittery bunnies too! I wish we had a mantle to decorate for the seasons, but I will have to settle for dressing up the table

I love seeing how people dress up their mantles for different holidays! I have so many ideas pinned and we don't even have a fireplace! LOL! Maybe in our next home :)

Extremely cute! I love that it's not overdone. A lot of people go crazy with their mantel and you can't tell what's going on. I love that this is full but simple all at once.

You made your mantel really cute! I really should start decorating mine for seasons & holidays, but I just never think to!

Normally we don't decorate for Easter only because we aren't home!
This is our first year home and I totally forgot to do anything fun.
Hoping to do a little craft of some kind with the kids this weekend to spruce up our mantel.

I love the mantle decor. It's very stylish. I've thought about decorating our fireplace, but I can never find the right accents.

We do go all out for every holiday! And Easter is no exception. This year I planted lots of grass seeds in every container I could find, including rusty metal trucks and wooden honey pots from Russian store. We are very happy! I love your decor too!
