patriotic mantel

A quick update to the living room mantel  for the upcoming 4th of July holiday.
Patriotic mantel 1
Remember the early summer mantel I shared here?
Patriotic mantel 2
I swapped out the sea fan & conch for a patriotic enamel tray and a galvanized watering can decorated with american flags respectively.
Patriotic mantel 3
Keeping the same composition and design on the mantel made it super easy to update.
Patriotic mantel 4
I did change out the candelabras with my small lanterns; I thought they had a better Americana vibe.
Patriotic mantel 5
I added other patriotic details like the liberty metal ribbon and an old baseball from Master Masterpieces.
Patriotic mantel 6
The vintage bunting I picked up a few months ago from a local craft store that was closing down…I wish I had gotten more.
Patriotic mantel 7
I also tucked in a mini flag into the cast iron planter as well as an old folded flag between the books  and lantern.
You can see my patriotic touches from last year here and here.
Happy Independence Day!
