25 Stunning Spring Ideas For Decorating A Mantel
From fresh blooms to chippy wood to cement animals, candlesticks and more, these beautiful spring ideas for mantel decor will spark and fuel your creativity as you put together your own design.
1. Peony Wreath on a Faux Window Arch
With the pink blooms, chipped wood paint, large olive buckets, and wood tones, this particular spring mantel decor I put together in my old living room was one of my favorite spring designs of all time!
2. Simple Splashes of Color
I love the simplicity of this mantel design. The dark gray painted bricks from the Happy Housie provide the perfect backdrop for the whites, greens, pinks, and purple splashes of color.
3. Modern Farmhouse Spring Mantel Decor
This spring mantel idea from Thistlewood Farms is gorgeous. I love the different levels of height through the use of trees and birds on top of riser blocks. Bright neutral colors with a shiplap background are offset by pops of green and gold.
4. Vintage Spring Fireplace Mantel Design
How cute is this design from Little Vintage Nest? Different sizes of white flower pots hold white, green, or peachy-pink florals. Stacked books add height where needed.
5. Sophisticated Mantel
This sophisticated and tasteful mantel design from Nest of Posies is a wonderful idea for decorating a mantel that’s a snap to replicate.
6. Chic Mantel of Pitchers
This spring mantel decor idea from A Blissful Nest has a nice modern farmhouse touch. The black on white hanging wall clock sets off the line of varying-sized pitchers, while the potted mini boxwoods and lantern add interest.
But, I think my favorite part is the pale pink rose petal pillow – very chic!
7. Pretty in Pink Mantel Design
Landeelu shows off a sweet and adorable Easter mantel design with a pale pink bunny in the background. The glass canister displaying Easter eggs among green “grass” is imaginative and adds the perfect touch.
8. A Mantel Full of Tulips and Daffodils
In my mind, tulips and daffodils are the quintessential springtime flowers. The weathered mantel and stone fireplace offers a lovely contrast to the bright and airy spring flowers.
This mantel from Mamas Dance perfectly blends nature with subtle rustic touches.
9. Colorful Chic
More tulips and bunnies!
Nothing says “spring” more than these two images. DIY Show Off’s bright tulips contrast the neutral, rustic tones of the other iconic springtime images: white bunnies, a wooden birdhouse, an antique birdcage with a nestful of eggs.
10. Antlers and Eucalyptus Leaves
Minimalist can be eye-catching, as is this example from Marci Schneider. Antlers, eucalyptus leaves, a circle mirror, and just a few other small pieces allow for a design that is easy to replicate.
11. Go Neutral
It doesn’t matter whether you are talking about paint colors or general decor, neutrals are all the rage right now. Stone Gable has everything a good modern farmhouse neutral mantel should in this spring mantel design: shutters, chippy window, and various neutral shades.
12. Spring Mantel & Hearth
Dining Delight makes terrific use of height through the placement of mini faux boxwood wreaths, faux Dogwood blooms, candleholders, and more. High, low, and everywhere in between, there is an interesting detail to be seen!
13. Highlight Spring Memories
Heirloom pieces add a touch of nostalgia to complement elements that are reminiscent of spring in this springtime mantel from Ciao From Newport Beach: green mums, white hydrangeas, a butterfly painting, and a cement bunny.
14. Fresh and Simple
Worthing Court made a lovely spring mantel design that was inspired by finding the iron piece holding the glass bottles. Add some glass bottles, some faux boxwood and other greenery, shutters, and lanterns for a fresh, charming look.
15. Pops of Color
I love the bright, spring-like pops of white, lime green, and bright blue against the stone fireplace and beautiful vintage clock face from Duke Manor Farm.
The white candlesticks and colorful eggs round everything out nicely while keeping it bright and fresh.
16. Southern Style With a French Twist
The white tulips look ultra-chic against the dark-framed circle mirror in this spring mantel decor design from Savvy Southern Style. I love how this design comes together with the pops of deep red from the books and the varying heights of all the elements. It’s beautiful!
17. Grow Where You Are Planted
I love the message and pale spring colors in this idea for spring mantel decor from House By Hoff. The blue mason jars holding pink blossoms are offset by the dark candlesticks with white candles. The pale spring colors on the wooden bead garland pull everything together.
18. Forsythia Blooms
I love these bright sunshine-yellow blooms from Random Thoughts Home. The bright, airy blooms combined with the white pitchers and lanterns and the pops of lime green are festive and just scream “spring!”
19. Feel Refreshed
Springtime is about feeling refreshed after a long, dreary winter, and flowers (especially white ones) make a room feel light, fresh, and alive. That’s why I love this white tulip wreath at the center of this white-themed mantel from My Pear Tree Home.
20. Yellow and Blue
Here’s another spring mantel design with yellow! Yellow and blue are perfect spring colors, and I love those blue and white eggs. The different height glass candle holders add a nice element in this design from 2 Ladies and a Chair.
21. Cascading Flowers
A Brick Home’s creativity flowed with this spring mantel decor by letting the florals hang down. The cascade effect adds a lovely touch to the variety of colors and textures that flank the rest of the farmhouse scheme.
Hello, layers! In this rustic spring mantel design from Rocky Hedge Farm, layers of mirrors keep even a darker room bright. The muted colors give a nice vintage touch while the blossoms give that springtime vibe.
23. Flower-Filled Vintage Teacups
One of the most creative ideas for mantel decor in this roundup, Cranberry Bush arranged flower-filled vintage teacups hung on the wall with twine. Books and a birdcage add height, while the blooms and potted plants add splashes of color.
24. Use What You Already Have
There’s no need to purchase items for your spring mantel decor when you can use pieces that you already have. Individually, the items included in this design from Funky Junk Interiors would not scream “mantel decor” to me. However, once styled together, they just work.
25. Easter-Themed Spring Mantel
With Easter being the major holiday in springtime, many people naturally associate the two together. This fun Easter-themed springtime mantel from Kelly Elko is colorful and playful at the same time.
I hope these ideas for mantel decor help get your springtime design creative juices flowing!
