Easter Mantel

Welcome to our "He is Risen" mantel! AKA our Easter Mantel :) With baby ready to arrive almost any day now, I kept the mantel pretty simple... a cross trio, little banner, twine eggs, church photo painted by my MIL, glass cross, and pretty blue jar. On our "secondary mantel" (aka. top of our entertainment center, what we use as our mantel when we're in a home that doesn't have real a mantel) I also have a little crystal bowl with "Jesus" eggs :)
Here's a close up of the banner that I made with just some paper, circle paper punch, sticker letters, twine, hole punch, and two bamboo skewers.
I love my twine from The Twinery and used it to wrap a few pieces of cardboard that I cut out into egg shapes. I hung them from some decorative branches using twisty ties!

The Jesus eggs {below} were super simple too. I picked up a package of 6 kraft eggs, painted a little white spot on the fronts, then added gold stickers. Voila!
Here's some close ups of the rest of the mantel bits and pieces. May you have a truly blessed Easter weekend, and thanks for stopping by! :)

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life."

I like the banner of He is Risen. I will have to remember that for next year.
