I have recently been loving the color pink, and have added it to my decor. This is how I decorated the mantel using pink.
I decided to make some changes to the mantel, and this is how I did it.
First, I removed the pink flowers from the white burlap wreath.
Then I removed all the items, leaving only the shutters, which I unfolded to have them stand flat against the mirror/wall.
Then I started adding and removing items.
I like to layer the items on the mantel, and using the shutters makes that really easy. You can use old empty frames to help layer also. In fact, at one point when I was doing the mantel, I had the shutters turned on the blue side, a white empty frame, and other items. But I took all that off too.
Aren't they adorable??
It still looked a little empty, so I used a mini rose garland that I had been using as a candle ring in another room. I unwound it and spread it across the mantel, and this filled it enough.
I ended up with a garden scene mantel theme, and I'm happy with it.
If you have trouble decorating your mantel, remember to layer items, and keep trying different displays, until you get the look you want, or something that pleases you.
