Looking to dress up your home for the Easter holiday? Grab inspiration from this carrot themed Easter mantel.
Gnomes keep me company in the winter, but when spring arrives bunnies pop up in every room. Last week I shared a sneak peek of the chocolate bunny bar in my dining room and now it’s time to share a peek at my carrot themed Easter mantel.
I am not the only one sharing a spring themed mantel today. I am joined by more than two dozen other bloggers participating in The Happy Housie’s Spring Seasonal Simplicity series. I am sharing links to ALL of their posts down below.
Carrot Themed Easter Mantel
It’s no secret that I am a big fan of decorating with simple printables. It’s easy to find cute designs online and many can be printed on your home printer.
Note: I use a Canon Pixma Pro for all of my printing. It can handle prints up to 13×19 (that’s pretty big!) and the color/clarity is often better than the prints I get back from a professional print shop.
I very nearly decorated my mantel around last year’s sassy Easter basket print. It remains one of the most popular printables on my site. In the end I decided to decorate with a carrot theme, because I LOVE ORANGE!

Easter Mantel DIY Sign
Now that I’ve found a location to purchase unfinished wood box frames inexpensively, I’ve been making a lot more signs. In addition to the cute Jumping Jack Rabbit’s Chocolate Bunny Bar sign on display in my dining room, I created a carrot themed sign for this year’s Easter mantel.
Isn’t it fun?
Easter Mantel Garland
I used a small bag of gingham carrots purchased at Hobby Lobby to create a carrot garland. The base of the carrots is styrofoam, so it was easy to string up on a length of orange and white baker’s twine.
I’ve purchased my sweet distressed bunnies over the course of several years. Since I tend to decorate with more of a modern/traditional touch, they’re probably the only “distressed” item in my house -ha! I purchased them from Hobby Lobby, as well. I hope they continue to stock this style bunny rabbit. It’s so cute!
The vases, urn and plants are all items that are regularly on display up on the mantel. I simply filled a few of them with some lavender sprigs.
Since I really and truly love orange decor, I have plenty of orange pillows and blankets around the house that I collected and placed in baskets near the fireplace.
I hope you love my Easter mantel as much as I do.
With the kitchen, dining room and family room all spruced up for spring, I have just a few more spaced to cover. I spent today refreshing all the linens with spring fabrics and should be ready to give you a tour of the whole house next week!
