Thrifty Spring Mantel

Recycle, ReUse and RePurpose! Is exactly how I put together a spring mantel for ZERO dollars.
Of course, originally I paid something for the items on my mantel!  But this season, instead of purchasing anything new, I 'shopped' the house.
Many of these same items were featured on my Valentine's mantel.
I left the empty frame with the white heart, white books (found at Goodwill) and old glass bottles.
Added the finial (picked up 2 years ago on clearance from Hobby Lobby) and my little birdie (purchased at Real Deal's last year).
On the left, I used my TJMaxx, clearance find, twig birdhouse along with a Dollar Tree birdie (from a year ago).  The vase of flowers is a Dollar Tree glass vase wrapped in burlap, tied with a ribbon from my stash and stuffed with fake Dollar Tree flowers for a bit of color.
The kicker here is putting something together around the mantel clock, which stays.
So I choose to do mini vignettes on each side of it.
Nothing fancy, but I love all the natural elements.  PERFECT for us at the Farm House.
And because I purchased these items over the last year or so, total new look, without spending a dime.
Beth over at The Stories of A to Z is hosting a Spring Mantel Party.  So I am linking up!
Head on over and see how all the ladies have celebrated the arrival of Spring with pretty decor.

Do you reuse items from around the house in your decor?


  1. Love your little bird! I saw some at the Dollar Tree a few days ago- I may get one and spray paint it white! I do my mantle up every month- thanks for sharing that great linky party! I shop around the house- or atleast only have to buy one or two things.

  2. Sherry,

    I love your mantel. You did a great job combining items for a wonderful look.


  3. I love your spring look. What a great arrangement you've done!

  4. Love all of your touches! Everything looks so nice and fresh.


  5. Hi Sherri,
    I am constantly rearranging things to decorate other areas!! I recently started decorating the shelf in my laundry room with items that don't have a home when I rearrange! It's fun...because I don't have to store them and my shelf gets a regular make-over!
    Thanks for your kind comments about my spring mantel:)

  6. Your mantel looks so pretty and inviting. Thanks for stoping by from your Nutt House to ours.


Thanks so much for stopping by to read my blog! I appreciate and read every comment. LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE! ~Sherri~
