There were a couple of things I didn't like about it. The big pink balls for sure. Next would be the bunnies. I want this set up to last for awhile, and bunnies just say Easter to much. At least that's what I thought. So I put the bunnies back in my daughter's room. Here is a close up of them. I have had them for years and they are super cute!
Okay, now here is look number two:
I am close to what I want! The green tulip vase just didn't go. I loved my son's art as well, but just not for this look. I also was not sold on how I had placed the frames.
Now for the final lucky number three:
Yes! I got it right. I wanted the ends to be more symmetrical and I think this is pretty good. I like the height of the frames in the middle too. Here are some close ups!
I really like this! The tin vase I got at Target for $2.50. I had ribbon left over from another project and the floral is from Hobby Lobby. I got those for 50% off. So they were $1.50 each. This look was $10.00 total!
The milk glass vases I found in two different shops in downtown Brenham, Tx. My hometown! I love strolling all the shops. I am never disappointed. These little mice I found in Brenham at the Pomegranate. It is located in downtown Brenham too. There is a great little place called the Funky Art Cafe inside the shop. Great place for lunch. The total for these four pieces plus the flowers from Target was about $23.00.
Lastly, the butterflies were made by my daughter and myself. We used coffee filters, watercolors, clothespins and pipe cleaners. She had a lot of fun making them. The pictures are of my sweet kiddos! Their first year frames. I just felt like showing them off.
I hope this mantel will inspire you to get ready for Spring! Have a great weekend.
