I saw a beautiful fall mantel on pinterest last year and I wish I could remember who did it, because it was just beautiful! If you guys know, let me know! I'm not sure how she made the flowers, but I loved the display of them; I think they were out of craft paper or something. Anyway.
That gave me my inspiration for my spring mantel.
I decided to add a little flare this year with those paper flowers though. They are super easy...and well..super cheap to make. Pretty much free if you have paper laying around.
It adds the perfect amount of whimsy and spring to the mantel :)
The tutorial on the subway art can be found here. And that little nautical knot ball? I'll write a how to post about it soon. They are super easy and cheap to make!
