Simple Spring Mantel and Living Room

Practical and pretty ideas for a Simple Spring Mantel and Living Room!

It’s spring inside my home!  There *may* be over 2 feet of snow outside, but inside it’s spring and I love it.  This time of year is when I hit my threshold of tolerance with winter, so any bits of spring and pops of colour are a welcome respite.  It feels good to transition to a new season with a little refresh inside my home…it makes the house feel light and cheerful, and that makes me happy.

And we’ll just ignore the fact that earlier this week we had a -31 C windchill.  And that I’m still wearing my parka, toque, scarf and Sorels.  Sigh.

But never mind the weather!  I decided that it was time to lighten things up indoors.  I always love the feeling when it’s time to transition to a new season or holiday. I especially love transitioning from Christmas to winter, then from winter to spring…because by the time that March hits, I want spring so bad.  And it doesn’t take much decorating to make it feel springy and fresh.  In fact, this year I didn’t decorate that much for spring, but it’s just enough that my home feels light and airy.  I kept things simple by switching out my winter pillows for the spring pillows I already had, then I added some fresh flowers.

I also made a new wreath to hang on my mantel…I really really love it.  And it only took me 5 minutes to make!  Now that’s my kind of craft.

I used some of the same flowers on this wreath, that I used to make my Simple Spring Wreath that I shared here last week.  For this new wreath, I used a different wreath base, and tucked in sprigs of the paper flowers.  So easy.  Then I hung it up on my mantel.

Spring Wreath Details:

  • I used a Wispy Grapevine Wreath Base (from Michaels…use a coupon!)
  • Paper flower sprigs (from Michaels)
  • I just tucked the sprigs into the wreath base.  That’s it.  No glue, nothing.  I didn’t want to use glue, because I may take apart the wreath some day, and I can reuse the base.

Then I used some leftover paper flower sprigs to make this arrangement.  Again, I just tucked the sprigs into the twigs.  I love how it turned out!

Looks nice, right?  Just enough.

Such a simple refresh to welcome spring!  It doesn’t have to be complicated to be beautiful.
