Simple Easter Mantle
What do to? What to do?
I ended up putting together this sweet and simple mantle decor in about 30 minutes. I love it!
The eggs are the backs of my lovely-but-outdated Moo business cards. I've held onto them because those designs are so beautiful and I knew I'd use them somewhere. I picked out about six of the most springy designs and free-hand cut them into egg shapes. Then I taped them onto some yellow and white baker's twine. (I still have at least 50 cards left -- can't wait for inspiration to strike again!)
Then I filled up two mason jars with colorful jelly beans and a third with some green paper filler.
I'll have to enjoy it while I can -- as soon as the boys are back they'll be clamoring for those jelly beans!!
In case you're curious, the photo on the left is of Abel's maternal grandparents on their wedding day. The one on the right is of the hotel my paternal grandfather owned. I love having two beautiful pieces of family history on display!
