For the last few weeks, we have been experiencing some beautiful early spring weather. I have been busy spring cleaning, getting my spring garden ready, and even wearing flip flops. So today, I find it a little comical to be writing a post about Spring decorating when in just a few hours we are expecting over a foot of snow. Our simple spring mantel has me longing for Spring even more with this snow on the way. For even more Spring mantel ideas I am sharing my Spring mantel along with over 20 of my blogging friends below!
Simple Spring Mantel

I try and keep most of my decorating simple taking my cues from nature and this spring mantel was no different. All of the items I used for our Spring decorating this year I found for free in and around our farmhouse. The first thing I added to our mantel were some fruit tree branches from our yard. I snipped the branches from the cherry trees in order to add some early Spring color to the mantel.
It is amazing to me that they are already starting to bloom. I love the small pops of color bursting from the woody branches.
I even tied a few crabapple springs with some kitchen twine to our pallet wreath to make it a little more cheery.
To make the mantel even more springy I added 2 book page eggs and small bird’s nests inside of 2 ball jars.
We found the tiny bird’s nests in our yard and I love the texture that they add to our mantel. It’s hard to imagine how tiny those bird’s eggs must have been to fit in those small nests.
I love the simple farmhouse style the ball mason jars add to our fireplace mantel.
I also added another nest with a ceramic egg that was Jason’s when he was little. Although, the nest isn’t real I love the pop of green moss that was added to it.
I have a confession to make, those are real eggs inside our glass jar :). I didn’t have any faux ones on hand so I grabbed these from my fridge.
I did put them away soon after taking these pictures but they sure did look pretty in the jar. I guess I might need to make some faux ones for nest year.
Fortunately I did have a few faux eggs to add to my wooden bowl on the coffee table along with a few more spring branches.
I hope to share our whole Spring Farmhouse tour with you soon after this crazy snowstorm ends.
But for now, you can find me snuggling with my family playing board games by the fire :). happy Spring,
Don’t forget to pin my Simple Spring Mantel!
