With a show-stopping center like a spring wreath, you can keep the rest of the mantel decor simple and light.

Tulip wreath Spring mantel (with DIY instructions)
How gorgeous is this tulip wreath? It is made from faux tulips so it will last a really long time and can be used over and over again. Layering the tulip wreath on an old window frame adds depth and a vintage style to this mantel. The wreath is a true focal point on this cottage spring mantel.
Vintage paper wreath Spring mantel
Instructions on how to make a vintage paper wreath in different styles can be found on my paper craft inspiration board. I love this pretty mantel in grey and white which showcases a stunning paper wreath as an eye-catcher.
Can you imagine your Spring mantel with a giant wagon wheel wreath? Good, me too! This particular wreath is hanging on a front door, but wow imagine that original wreath as a focus of attention on a spring mantel. It would be an instant wow factor for any living room. The use of faux flowers and fake boxwood makes this a wreath that will last a long time indoors.
Vintage Style Spring Mantel Ideas
Bring new and old together when you use vintage items in the new season’s decor. The freshness of spring pairs well with the rustic and vintage of old items. Look at how beautiful these vintage-inspired spring mantels are. I see old frames, antique books, vintage pitchers used as vases, colorful mason jars, and a whole collection of vintage items on these mantels.
The muted colors on this spring mantel are just perfect and the layered vintage mirrors bring in lots of extra light in this spring season that for many of us is still a rather dark start of the year.
Vintage tea cups mantel decor idea
What a fun and whimsical spring mantel with floating teacups and soft fresh blooms. The vintage details are soft and romantic here and pair well with the pink flowers and spring bulbs. I think the little nests made from moss with Easter eggs are simply perfection. Little antique book stacks are used to add height and depth to this mantel.
Vintage Spring mantel with ball jars
Vintage blue ball jars fit in with every season. Here they are shining on a fireplace mantel. One mason jar might look a little lost, but a row of vintage ball jars is just perfect for it makes a statement. The colors on truly vintage jars are all a bit different, making this a lovely collection of aqua-tinted glass.
A rustic, old frame and some worn metal pitchers are the perfect backgrounds for this spring mantel. A rustic decorating style is almost always also a vintage decor style because let’s face it, nothing beats genuine scuffs and marks from years of wear and tear. The fresh flowers and the use of a window frame add lightness and freshness to the heavier design of this rustic fireplace.
Vintage Spring fireplace decor idea
Old books and boxes, and vintage-looking prints come together in this lovely spring mantel. The wooden candlesticks and the old wood beam of the fireplace are rough and rustic. The soft muted colors of the frame and box make a great match and add a touch of femininity to this strong rustic mantel decor.

It doesn’t get easier than this lovely spring banner made from paper doilies. This mantel would have been very pretty without the paper garland, but with it, it is just perfection.

Perfect timing on these pictures… my mantel will be decorated for Spring this weekend and this gave me great ideas. I’m sooooooooo over this weather. We are supposed to get more snow/rain/ice this weekend. Ugh!
Poor you! We have had the warmest winter in years, so far. We can almost feel Spring in the air. Dangerous feeling cause the weather could still turn on us every moment.
Stay warm, and happy decorating to you!
Since I have a two inch (maybe less) little mantle I’ve never thought to line up mercury glass, little posies of flowers in a line down the mantel under the mirror. I’m going to do this when the flowers begin to bloom! Simple yet a touch of spring!
Another idea was just the pop of yellow. I have a small ikea lantern left and I have yellow spray paint. I have a clear glass cylinder vase that fits on my little mantel and I have these unusual little yellow faux seed balls I can use. Ill tuck in clear glass items and a yellow tall candle taper I have. How fun!! I’m inspired to use my things new ways! Thank you for collecting all this inspiration in one spot!!
Glad you liked my gallery and found inspiration. Happy decorating to you!
Hi Marianne, hmm I love your aqua and white, and a touch of yellow is always warming. Hope your day is good as we had a most beautiful day yesterday and today we are white with snow. It is beautiful to watch it fall. Blessings and smiles, Emilou 🙂
It feels like Spring here, so it felt right to start thinking about Spring decorating. I sure hope winter doesn’t come knocking on our doors, we like the warm winter. Enjoy the snow for both of us!

Hi Marianne I love the rustic vintage spring mantel. Where do you get the mirrors and the bee keeper print? Also what type are the white flower stems? It looks amazing and the perfect feel and colours for my home.
