{Easter Egg Garland & Mantel}

Spring is definitely in the air, and we got a nice hint of it this past weekend in Georgia!  With a new season approaching, I’ve been changing a lot of the decor in my house to get us all in a fresh, Springtime mood.  When I saw these cute Easter egg ornaments at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago, I knew they’d be perfect for an Easter Egg Garland for my Spring Mantel!

To make

you’ll need:

jute twine

burlap scraps


I know there are some other items pictured in the supplies photo, but I ended up not using a few of them.  I’m sure they’ll be used soon!

To get started, I put up the length of jute twine that I needed on my mantel for my garland.  I like to hang the garland high enough that my little, climbing toddler can’t reach it.

To attach the jute twine, I tied it around some vases on top of the mantel.  This is typically how I attach any kind of garland I make.

I then began attaching each egg ornament by tying it on with a small piece of jute twine.

Soon, I had an entire garland full of colorful Easter Eggs.  In between every few eggs, I also tied on a scrap piece of burlap to give the garland some more texture.

I love the pop of color that the eggs add to the mantel {and the fact that it can stay up through the end of the month for Easter}.  To the top of the mantel, I added some bright green and purple floral stems and picks to some tall vases and my twine wrapped bottles.


I also tied on a scrap piece of muslin from my stash.  I’m loving the imperfect-ness of the bows.


The other side of the mantel holds a tall hurricane vase with our wine cork collection and some yarn wrapped Easter eggs purchased a few years back.

My mantels are typically simple, but that’s what I love about them.  Spring is all about simplicity after all!

How have you decorated for Spring or Easter so far?


I’ll be linking up at these parties!
