Slowly but surely my love for Farmhouse style decor is creeping into the formal dining room.
When I took down the Easter decor on the faux fireplace mantel this week, I couldn't decide what to put up in it's place. I knew I wanted to create a banner to hang across the mantel, so I looked thru my Pinterest board to get some ideas.
The buffalo check pennant caught my eye right away.........
Then I clicked over to my Alphabet board and these gorgeous black letters covered with roses caught my eye first thing!
I think the combination of the two elements......checks and roses......made a beautiful spring banner
The R is probably my favorite letter......lots of roses on it
I couldn't find the I in this alphabet, so I printed an H and cut the I out of it!
Bringing up the rear of my spring banner........
and the G
I decorated the mantel with a combination of different containers of roses.
I used silver.....milk glass.......and the ferns are in glass containers that are filled with a "dirt look" styrofoam.
I tied some rose stems together to make a topiary in a milk glass bud vase.
I added some farmhouse touches to each side of the fireplace.
I tucked a cute cow print on one side.......
and a watercolor cow print on the other side.
You are welcome to use any of the prints I used to create my spring banner, just click over to my Pinterest board.......https://www.pinterest.com/penny2005/print-it/
I added some spring to the fireplace opening too
I filled the vintage heater with greenery.
