This past week I’ve been posting a lot of patriotic inspiration from around Pinterest to help inspire your holiday decor. Today I’m finally sharing my 4th of July Mantel. This mantel was put together with items I found around my home, which made putting it together not only cost-effective but easy.
The only thing that is “new” is the Patriotic Popsicle Stick Garland I made a couple of weeks ago. By using what I already had around my home I saved a ton of money. I bet if you looked around and through your craft stash you might have enough to pull together a cute display too.
Sometimes everything works out and coordinates, and other times it may just take a quick coat of paint to transform something so it works with your design. Luckily everything I had went together.
The DIY Chalkboard I just added a quick message to. I added vintage books, one of my favorite things to have on hand for decorating. I scour thrift shops for them. The painted number sign is actually from my sweet friends at Lolly Jane. There isn’t a tutorial for it since it was from one of our craft events. It was perfect for this mantel. I added my favorite wood anchor, and some miscellaneous decor that matched the theme.
Last year I loved my Patriotic Mantel with an all neutral color palette. This year I wanted to make it a little more traditional by adding the reds, and blues. So glad I did. I’m super happy with how quickly this mantel came together and that it cost me absolutely nothing to put together. I hope you love it too.
