Floral Trend Spring Mantle - JoAnn Fabric and Craft Store

Did you know that it's National Craft Month?  When Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft store contacted me and asked if I wanted to create a spring craft, I jumped at the chance. I found inspiration in the spring trends highlighted at Jo-Ann, specifically the floral trend for spring.  I wanted to create a crafty spring mantle, with an emphasis on florals.  Jo-Ann makes spring crafting easy during National Craft Month with a $5 off $25 or more purchase coupon and a spring crafting inspiration website.  

This project was quick and easy using the supplies I purchased at Jo-Ann.

 With some floral scrapbook paper, paper mache letters, mod-podge and silk flowers, I was ready to tackle my spring mantle.  

To create the decoupaged letters, I traced the letters face down onto the reverse side of floral scrapbook paper.  Then I cut them out using a scissor.
For the fronts of the letters I used mod podge and applied it with a foam brush directly onto the letters.

After applying all of the fronts, I decided to cut out long strips and mod podge the sides as well.  This time I spread the mod podge directly onto the paper making it easier to get around all of the curves.
Instantly my mantle felt more like spring.
 I used an empty spaghetti sauce jar wrapped in more floral craft paper as a vase for my flowers, also from Jo-Ann.  Jo-Ann has a huge assortment of silk florals to choose from.
I also created a floral paper box to hold a small faux birds nest.

Don't florals instantly make you think of spring?  Good thing too since it's still in the 30's here in NY.
