We don’t have a fireplace in our house, so therefore we don’t have a mantel. Instead, I decorate a large sofa table that sits by our front door for different holidays and seasons. This month, Kristy from Life-n-Reflection sent me a fun spring banner to use in my spring decorating.

Here are the two fun files I got to play with:

I found an awesome framed mirror at a garage sale recently for only $1! I knew it would be perfect for decorating with. The only thing I had to do was clean the dust off the mirrors and it was ready to go. I love that is is not perfect and looks a little aged!

I started out by printing out the Spring Party Banner. I used my printer settings to print it on half a sheet rather than a full sheet to make the pennants a little smaller. I used white card stock.

After it was printed, I cut out each of the pennants. To create a banner, I used a glue dot on the back of each pennant and attached yellow twine to each one.

To attach the banner to my mirror, I used some fun yellow chevron washi tape I had on hand.

I printed off the {Create Your Own Dream} sign. I trimmed it to fit in my 8 x 10 frame.

Kristy is offering this sign for free on her site: Create Your Own Dream Sign

I added a butterfly clip I purchased a while ago at Michael’s store, for only $1. I added a small pitcher I found at Dollar Tree and also my moss topiary I had left over from my friend’s baby shower.

My entry way is so fun and cheerful now!

Do you have a mantel or somewhere else you display your holiday decorations?
