Shabby Chic Spring Bunting

I managed last week to get a bit of spring put up in our home.  I know the mantle here needs a little tweaking to balance it, but more than likely, it's not going to happen.  

We are often off balanced around here anyway, ha!

After making this bunting with my daughter, I sure thought it would be neat to make another one.

And, although, we really don't have "shabby chic" in this room, throwing in a little for some seasonal decor works for me!

As I did here with the lace, I used handitac to put the bunting and flowers on the mantle.  The flowers are just a shabby rolled rosette made with muslin and the hot glue gun.

I think the subtle colors are romantic and soothing.

Just for fun, I made color swatch board.

It's still quite cool here, but at least the sun has been shining off and on and it is officially Spring!!!
