Beach Themed Summer Mantel Reveal
Over the past week I have given you a peak at some of my creations for my beach themed summer mantel. Now it's time for the big reveal!
I wrapped a bundle of DIY Driftwood with twine and set it in the middle of the mantel with a starfish perched on top. Across the top of the mirror, I draped my Maritime Signal Flag Bunting.
On the left side of the mantel, I placed a collection of sea glass in stoppered glass apothecary bottles, along with a jar of miniature starfish.
Moving to the right, I added vintage mason jars filled with river rock and seashells.
On the opposite side of the mantel, I placed my painted and distressed Ship Wheel, and Photo in a Bottle.
The two sea glass inspired bottles at the back are upcycled wine bottles. I painted them with acrylic paint followed by a coating of wet baking soda to give a sandy appearance when dry. The seashell bottle topper was made by gluing shells to a black rubber stopper.
It took a while, but my summer mantel is finally complete. I am absolutely thrilled with how it turned out!
Thank you for featuring my mantel!
