I've gotta say, this year is the first that I've decorated for holidays other than Christmas...it's very minimal, but I love it :) It's fun to get my craft on and jazz up the mantel with colors and themes of whatever festivities may be coming up. St. Patty's Day is right around the corner and here is what I did with my mantel over the weekend...got the fun idea for the garland from here.
I used the glass soda bottles from Adam's 80's birthday bash for vases...and took apart a couple bouquets of dainty spring flowers I got on sale at Michaels. The picture of our little family is in the center because I feel that's what makes me LUCKY :)
And last week I was inspired by this lovely lady to spray paint some of the glass soda bottles....
I learned a little lesson:
Spray painting over the ink printed numbers causes some major smear/drippage. A few more layers of paint hid most of it, but I made sure to get the print off the other bottles with my handy-dandy Magic Eraser. (those things really are magic I tell ya)
What do you think? :)
