Summer Mantel - By the Seashore

I have been working on my Summer Mantel.
Even though Summer has been here for months.

The 5 year old and I have been busy shell collecting
So I knew I wanted to incorporate them.
The inspiration.....By the Seashore.

I pulled back out my trusty dictionary pages canvases
(these make such a difference on the white walls)

I gathered lanterns and glass jars
shells and books
and added a touch for the 4th.

Lanterns from Yankee Candle (years ago)
Glass Jars - Goodwill
By the Seashore sign - made by me
Framed Starfish with tissue paper background
(starfish from Mom/background tissue paper from Target dollar bins)
Pinwheels - from Michael's
Coffee Filter Wreath - made by me

Best thing is we can just keep adding shells as we find them.
I love how simple and neutral this turned out.

Hanging out with my Friends....


  1. If I lived near the beach, this would definitely be my "copy cat" mantel project. Sweet!

  2. Your summer mantel is lovely! Perfect for summer :)
