I decided last week that my mantle needed an update for spring. I knew that I wanted to use a window (since I'm obsessed with those right now), but that's about all I knew. I put the window up there by itself, and it was just too plain, so I decided to put some old feed sack material behind it to give the mantle some color. Red and yellow tend to be dominant colors in my house, so I decided to go with this fabric.
It was super easy...I just stapled the fabric onto the back of the window.
It turned out looking like this...cute right?!?!?
I decided to set it in the middle of the mantle so it could be the focal point. I played around with the accessories surrounding it, until I finally found something I was happy with. But I thought it still needed something. That's when I robbed the burlap wreath off of my shutter and placed it on the window...but I still thought it needed something, so I added a black bow, which I really think pops!
