updated spring mantel

Last week when I showed you my spring mantel I told you I was working on something to replace the Happy Easter. It works since Easter is coming up, but I wanted something that could stay out past Easter for all of spring. Here's what it looked like before

The things I've done with buttons are some of my most popular posts and the ones that get pinned the most (you can see them here, here, and here), so since you guys like them I thought I would do another one.

I painted the frame white and cut some cute polka dot paper to fit, then using buttons I had in my stash I made some cute little flowers. Since I knew I wanted it to hang on that hook stand, I glued some sparkly pink ribbon to the back of the frame.

I'm still loving my spring vases and those bright and cheerful flowers

Here's my updated spring mantel now
And my invitation for the weather outside to join my bright and happy mantel worked! We have had amazing 70 degree weather the past few days, and even though I know we will most likely still have some cold days before winter is really over, I'm loving it while it's here!
