Spring may be weeks away but just the thought of warmer temperatures makes me want to decorate my home for the new season. To prepare for the season I created a simple Spring floral mantel.

To me Spring means lots of brightly colored flowers and budding trees as the weather gets warmer and everything just seems to be so fresh and new. This year I am looking forward to Spring since we have had an endless dark and rainy winter here in East TN. I’m actually surprised the colder temperatures haven’t killed off my early blooming daffodils but so far they are still hanging in there.
To celebrate the arrival of Spring temperatures very soon, for this month’s Pinterest Challenge, I decided to fill my mantel and hearth with floral blooms for a simple Spring floral mantel.
The Pinterest Challenge is no longer active each month, but you can still visit and follow the blog posts that were linked up to this challenge below.
When it was active, the purpose of the Pinterest Challenge was to motivate all the participants (and you too) to not just pin an idea, but to make it happen! This month’s challenge was about Spring Projects with a focus on Easter and Gardening, so I chose….A Simple Spring Floral Mantel.
This was year I decided to decorate my large rustic fireplace and mantel for every season and most holidays. Changing out the décor on a mantel can be just inspiring for a new season but let’s face it – it is also fun!
My inspirational for my Spring mantel started with last’s month’s #PinterestChallenge when I finally created a Spring Tulip Wreath that I displayed over my mantel for the post.
Originally the wreath was intended for my back entrance but I just loved it so much over the mantel that I just left it there. So for this month’s challenge for anything Spring related, I started looking for ideas on how to compliment the tulip wreath over my mantel for the rest of the mantel display.
And what I found that I love was the pin by Kristin @ Yellow Bliss Road, featuring just a simple display of glass jars and floral stems.
Not only did this simple décor give me a reason to line up the entire mantel with beautiful floral stems, but it also spoke to my love of vintage mason jars.
A quick trip to Michael’s and their floral department, I was able to spread some floral cheer and spring time fun across my mantel using clear mason jars and my Ball Mason Jar Green Glass Heritage Collection.
Spring flowers and mason jars!
I wanted to duplicate the colors featured in the tulip wreath. Using the green jars was a perfect match and compliment to the colors in the wreath. Then I only added orange and white tulips, yellow daffodils, and only small white flowers to the mix.
On the hearth, you will see the paint washed green basket I made for my post last month on a basket makeover with paint and water, filled with just large white, orange, and yellow tulips.
My spring floral mantel was so simple and easy to pull together and I was able to use items from previous blog projects to finish it up.
Enjoy the Spring flowers any way you can!
Song of Solomon 2:11-12
For behold, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.
