I made some small changes to my mantel this weekend. I saw this yellow spring wreath at Hobby Lobby and decided that it was just what I needed to perk up my den! It reminds me that even in the bleak, cold winter months, spring is right around the corner.
Behind the wreath is an antique frame that I layered book pages over. I love the subtle contrast that it provides. On either side I put a simple topiary, letting the wreath be the star of the show. I made the topiaries, a simple weekend project, and have the tutorial coming later. Mantels are such hard places to decorate! It seems like I'm always tweaking mine, but for now I'm enjoying my new wreath and topiaries.
