Summer beach theme mantel

It's almost officially summer so that means its time to pull out the summer decor, particularly my coastal decor. I started with my mantel. I made a large portion of my coastal decor last year. I've switched up the mantel just a little bit this year.





This isn't a great shot, but here's the mantel as a whole.


Some of this year's changes include pulling in the burlap wrapped and shell candles I used in my centerpiece last year.



I also took an old syrup bottle and wrapped it in jute twine, stamped out a tag and added some shell buttons. The hubby liked this addition. I was inspired by charcoal and crayons to make this piece.



I used the sea shell art again.



And the hurricane filled with shells.



Hope you have enjoyed viewing my beach themed mantel.
