Mantle Makeover – Nature Theme

After Christmas, I was ready for a change from my usual winter mantle display. After a web search, I found the perfect inspiration at Better Homes and Gardens. I was instantly attracted to all the nature objects.

Here’s the empty canvas.

Here’s the recreated version of my mantle inspiration.

Here’s how it all came together.

  • I used two pictures I had previously purchased at TJMaxx.
  • I found the driftwood at a pet store in the aquarium department and the two pots and candles at Hobby Lobby at 50% off.
  • The birch wood slices were purchased at Floral Accents. (You really should check them out. They have the most beautiful birchwood candle holders!)
  • Instead of buying pre-made moss balls I decided to make the moss balls myself.
  • The kids and I found the pinecones on a nature walk and the sticks are from our backyard.
  • The one addition I made to the inspiration mantle is the wood clock made by my grandfather.

I couldn’t be more pleased with the final results.

Where do you look for decorating inspiration?
