My Attempt at a Summer Mantel

Here is my original take on a summer mantel:


I love this little lamp. I got it at Target years ago on clearance for under 3 bucks.





I may add some faux geraniums to this mantel before I link it up.
But don’t get used to the above as it has changed a multitude of times.

First, I created these cute little accents with frames from Dollar Tree here



Then I wanted some color for the mantel so I painted these cute little birdie candle holders that I got from where else…Dollar Tree.
And I loved the mantel even more….really I did but it was missing something……
And that seemed to do the trick. Almost.
Then my good friend bought me the cute little 2 mason jar and I knew I had to use it on the “summer mantel”.
So here it is, the final product.
I swear.
Then I couldn’t just leave well enough alone.

So I painted the middle star red with my handy dandy spray paint.


Happy Summer Mantel-ing!!
