Spring mantel

One more thing that I can check off of my list is the fireplace in my family room.  This past Sunday I tackled the mantel and the front porch.  Here is how the mantel turned out.





I was going with a green and white theme and then I decided to throw in a little bit of pink with the tulips.








I made the topiaries this weekend also.  I got these urns at Hobby Lobby and at first I thought they were ceramic but they are actually metal (which is what I prefer).


I had some greenery balls of different sizes that I used and I hot glued them to a floral stem.  I then added some more greenery to cover up the stem since it was pretty thin.  I thought they turned out nice but the hubby says it looks like a green snowman.




Last minute touch after I had already taken pictures.  I like to use my candle holder on the fireplace hearth to try and fill in the big gap from the actual fireplace and the hearth.  It sits on a cardboard box that I like to cover with greenery and flowers.  The candles are battery operated so they come on at night for a nice glow as do the candles in the scones above.
