Since neither Punxsutawney Phil nor Staten Island Chuck (yes, he’s a real thing!) saw their shadows, we were guaranteed an early spring! As I gaze out my window at my snow covered lawn, I’m not so sure but I’m not gonna let a little snow get in my way. I’m bringing sunshine inside with my spring chalkboard mantel and my DIY egg garland that is the perfect spring craft to brighten up your home.
This giant chalkboard mantel may have been my best, and FREE, score ever! If you’re searching for your own, Etsy has a great selection of vintage chalkboards.

With a statement making chalkboard like this, my mantel doesn’t need much else. I do love covering the black hole of my fireplace and this huge plant is the perfect disguise. A rattan basket is the perfect light and airy planter.
Best part … the plant was free too! I got it on Facebook Marketplace. Don’t miss my tips on making money in Facebook buy and sell groups.
I’m not normally a fan of faux flowers but these white blossoms look so lifelike and they are perfect for adding a little dimension to the mantel.
I love the bright colors of this garland I made years ago and I share how to make the egg garland here.
Magnolia blossoms and yellow finches scream spring.
I love the fresh look of my living room with lots of blues and greens with a touch of hot pink, real plants, rattan and fun accessories.
Hoppy Spring! Now if this snow would just melt.
