Easter Mantel

To color or not to color.

Go for glam or keep it rustic.

I’ve spent the last several weeks browsing the web, catalogs, magazines for new inspiration.  The inspiration for a collection of items for the shop and ideas to share with you.  I find inspiration in glamorous homes with lots of colorful furnishings.  Then rework the ideas to fit my rustic tonal style.

The style of our Easter mantel.

Country Design Keeping

Wooden Eggs on Easter Mantel | Country Design Style | countrydesignstyle.comThe Easter mantel started with a chalkboard fresh eggs sign.  I made this chalkboard way before blogging.  {I will be making them in different sizes for the shop too}  My plans at first were to make a transfer for the chalk lettering.  Then time took over and I just made a block lettering sign by hand.  Sometimes things can be too done!

Then I gathered my wooden eggs to display on the Easter mantel.

I placed some into little burlap thread nests made for the wreath and covered them with a glass dome.

My favorite idea for a nest is simply curl up a rope and place the eggs inside.

I like easy ideas.

This little bird was the one and only image transfer I did that ever worked for me.  I need to practice…or patience!

I used the old organ mantel to display the wood egg collection.  The lady on the bottom right was a dumpster dive find!  Mike found it and brought her home to me!!!!  She was painted in soft southwestern pastels, but she likes her soft white better. 🙂

This nest was made from a pile of leftover burlap threads, yarn, and twine covered in mod podge.  Update:  Here’s the post and Periscope for making easy twine nests.

I’m thankful for all different styles and colors.  The world would be a boring place if we all had the same tastes.  Plus is fun and creative to see things you like and adapt them to your look.

Now I’m going to gather my mod podge and scrap twine!
