Spring Mantle…

April 16, 2014

Quick and easy SPRING MANTLE 

Has your mantle been taken over by a big screen tv – like mine?   I was given the challenge to come up with a clever way to decorate our “spring time” mantle & Command brand products were the perfect solution.  I am working with Command during 2014, to show you clever ways to use their products.  Continue reading, to learn how you can decorate your mantle for any holiday, using Command products (even with an unsightly flat screen tv).  They are damage free and are easily removable to make room for the next season.


Here is a before shot of my mantle.  It’s in desperate need of some color and style.

There are only a few simple steps to creating a spring time mantle with Command products.


1.  Gather your supplies.

2. Decide which damage free Command products you will be using.  For our mantle, I chose the Clear Decorating Clips.  They are small and barely noticeable.

3.  Prepare your surface. To use Command Decorating Clips, you must wipe the area with isopropyl rubbing alcohol.  This ensures a tight bond with the clips and the surface.

4.  Apply the Command Decorating Clips according the package instructions.  (Remove blue liner. Press adhesive to clip. Make sure tab is accessible for future removal.  Then remove black liner.  Press clip firmly for 30 seconds & wait one hour before hanging decorations on the clips).

5.  Now you’re ready to hang the decorations on the clips. Command has different types of hooks for wreaths. If your wreath is heavy, you can use a stronger hook.

6.  Finally, add your spring decorations, to fill in the remaining space on  the mantle.

    Love it! My TV isn’t on the mantle but I have a large black and white picture there- the pink blooms are so pretty- where did you find the urns for the sides?

  3. D'Arcy says:

    Love it! I have the same banner and have it on my mantle also. Unfortunately, it’s held up by tape right now and little girl keeps pulling it down. I forget about these Command hooks, will have to pick some up today!

    This is beautiful and so cheerful! I used those same Command hooks for our Christmas garland. Creating a reusable chalkboard banner like this one – http://www.preciouslypreserved.com/diy-burlap-chalkboard-banner/ – is on my list of DIY projects. One thing, though…I was wondering about the spelling of mantle. I believe “mantle” refers to a cloak or shawl and “mantel” is a beam or shelf above the fireplace.
