In an effort to create a simple Easter mantel, I went shopping in my own closets. My goal was to represent the true spirit of Easter. New life. New beginnings.
The DIY Chalkboard that I use for nearly every holiday with a paraphrased version of Revelation 21:5 was the inspiration and starting point for the mantel. Continuing with simple, I kept everything brown and white like the chalkboard. Two flowering stems from Michael’s are tucked into a white pitcher that was a wedding gift.
For interest, I drew the paraphrased verse onto the chalkboard using two fonts, Footlight MT Light and Blackjack Regular, available in Word.
Sometimes the simplest looks are the best, and I love how this turned out.
What do you have in your closets or attic already that you can pull together for a simple Easter setting? I bet more than you think!
If you don’t have a chalkboard, be sure to hop over to the DIY Chalkboard Tutorial to see how simple it is to make your own. Again, I used an old frame I already had, and for just a few dollars, created this versatile board that can be used for any holiday or decorating all year long!
Thankful that He makes all things new…
