One of the favorite areas to decorate in my home is my faux fireplace & mantel. When we moved into our home, we didn’t have an actual fireplace, and this was an element that I knew I wanted so I decided to build a faux fireplace…the perfect place to change out and display seasonal decor. With spring sneaking in, I thought it was the perfect time to swap out my everyday decor and bring in some fun bright spring decor. I love to create DIY decor and this was such a fun project to take on. Here is what my fireplace looks like before I headed out to Jo-Ann to grab some decor. Hi, it’s Rebecca from Petite Party Studio, showing you this simply decor DIY.
The first thing I made was this succulent monogram shadow box.
The shadowbox came with glass in it and in order to fit the succulents in, I carefully popped it out to accommodate my project. Next, using double-sided tape or spray adhesive, I added decorative paper to the back of the frame. Then, I clustered the faux succulents in the corners using hot glue. The final step was to secure the wood letter.
I used this DIY succulent art piece as the focal point for my mantel. Next, I found some pretty candlesticks and candles to add a pop of color and dimension. I also layered this natural wood hand carved mirror behind to create some depth.
On the other side, I found this gorgeous aqua glass hurricane that I added in with some existing items I had from around my house. A quick mantel filler is to create a printable with special dates and frame it. This one here has our wedding date listed.
Since this is a faux fireplace, I like to bring color and texture to the hearth. In-store at JOANN Stores they had a great selection of woven baskets like this one pictured and this darling pineapple pillow.
Now let’s take a step back a look at the final project and how it came together.
