I had not really done much with the mantel since Easter and decided it needed a sprucing up. I took my Cupcake Liner Wreath and hung it in place. Then I went through stuff I already had to add to the mantel.
I put together an empty white frame, a leftover cardboard star and two paper favor bags to create a little piece of artwork. It was quick and easy. I think I'm going to look at paper favor bags in a whole new way now. I always seem to have a couple extra after each party. I also added a cute little lantern from Ikea with it on the mantel. It has little star cut outs in it, and so I thought it fit perfectly.
Using the paper cones from my various mantels before I wrapped them with some remaining cupcake liners. Then I placed them on top of tea light stands from the Dollar Tree. I also wrapped some jute twine around a Dollar Tree vase and adhered simple metallic stars to it, and you can see that with the trees in the first picture.
This mantel will surely last me through the beginning of July since there are so many patriotic holidays coming up. Thanks so much for stopping by here today. I hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend.
