Warm weather is finally here, which means it’s time to start thinking about sprucing up your home for spring. One area that always looks great with a little seasonal TLC is the mantel. Here are a few tips for decorating a mantel for spring.

How To Decorate A Mantle For Spring?

When decorating a mantel for spring, start by thinking about the colors and textures of the season. Incorporate vibrant hues of pink, blue and green along with whites and neutrals to brighten up the space. Hang a wreath made of preserved or dried spring blooms and boxwood greenery for an inviting look. Place some potted plants on the mantel, such as jasmine or pansies. Place some spring themed figurines and decorative accents like bunnies and birdhouses.  Finally, add in small touches of nature like branches, moss balls, and stones to complete the look. Check out our list below to make your mantel the focal point of your home this spring.

DIY Tissue Paper Flowers

Create a garland out of tissue paper flowers in colors that coordinate with the rest of your decor.

Hang Bunting

I’ve seen banners that say “SPRING”, which I like.  But, I love this buffalo plaid and burlap bunny bunting from Amazon. Easter decor with an atypical vibe!

Nice Stems

Flowers bring the outdoors in, and they’re perfect for springtime decorating. Multicolored glass vases and pitchers are also a great way to add a pop of color to your living room fireplace mantel.  It doesn’t matter if you use fresh flowers or faux.

Pip Berry Garland

I love this pastel pink pip berry garland from Amazon!  It even has lights strewn through it which will look gorgeous at dusk!  Layer it with other spring décor and accessories.

Glam Spring Mantel

Luxurious vintage interior with fireplace in the aristocratic style.

Um woah! This is the most luxurious glam spring mantel I’ve ever seen (I can imagine Kim K with this fireplace in the spring). If it’s spring, you don’t need to burn a fire anyways so fill it up with dozens of white flowers (or any color for that matter).

Turquoise and Dusty Rose

Topiary Trees

Place a pair of topiary trees on either side to add height and depth to the mantle display. I love the simplicity of manicured topiaries.  Check out a diy tutorial to make your own at A Time For Everything.

Pastel Picture Frames

Display framed photos that capture moments from your spring activities, sports, and adventures. Use picture frames that are in a spring color palette. This is an easy spring mantel diy project! 

Scented Candles

Place scented candles around the mantel for a relaxing atmosphere. Lavender, lemongrass, and other light fragrances are perfect for springtime.  Use candlesticks or candle holders in a variety of heights to add depth.  

These spring mantel decorating ideas can help you create a beautiful springtime display!  And if you don’t have a fireplace mantle, you can still use these ideas and color schemes to decorate your shelves for the season! Have fun mixing and matching different decorations to come up with a look that expresses your personal style.
