The PRETTY Easter Mantle...

My Easter Sideboard display became an Easter Mantel this year...
Mainly because the sideboard is currently home 
to a little fish in it's aquarium which is on holiday with me.
So I had to change a few Easter ideas and came up with:

Painted Glassware
 Painted pastel glassware...

Free Printable
A FREE watercolour rabbit printable which I framed...

Paper Flowers
And some 'Pretty Paper Flowers'...These paper flowers are incredibly simply to make.
Use to decorate gifts.
Make a banner.
Or pop into a pretty bowl for a pop of pretty in the decor.

All you need is a scalloped flower template.
There's plenty to choose from on the internet...
but the one I used is the 8 petal flower 
Download and save to your computer.

Step One:  Select paper in your choice of colours

Step Two: Print directly onto your chosen papers
You need to print TWO templates per flower.
My paper size was 6 x 6.5 inch
My print size was 4 x 6 inch on Landscape setting.

Step three: Carefully cut out your scalloped flower templates.

Today I'm making three flowers.

Step Four: Hold two templates together and carefully use a the point of your craft scissors to put a hole in the centre.  Pop a brad into the hole.

Step Five:  Cut each of the petals to the brad. Pinch the top petals as shown.

I combined all the Easter created elements on the mantel with a ceramic rabbit, a Easter themed jar of mini eggs, the pastel painted glassware and a little rabbit Easter glitter globe.

Then the last touch to the very pastel pretty but simple Easter Mantel display was
some random size cut wood blocks. 
Painted in the same pastels as the glassware.
I modpodged reverse (mirror) image letters on to them.

And here is the end result of all the pretty and fun creativity...
