Simple Easter Mantel

Simple Easter Mantel

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!

Simple Easter Mantel  As we approach Easter, I pray you know the simple, yet profound truth of Jesus’s death and resurrection and its transforming power in our lives.

Thankful that He makes all things new
