Back to school mantel

Welcome back!  Let's take a look at those stenciled canvases... they cost about $3.50 each.  I think they are going to be used over and over again.  I made an orange set too.

My new mantel is 2 shelves and very white.  White to the ceiling.  Here is what I did with it last month...

Next I added the back to school picture frame, the framed markers and crayons and a few other little objects.

I think my favorite object on the mantel is a book I found in my preschool room called I WANT TO READ.  It is filled with adorable illustrations like the 2 below.  
I will be sharing some of these ideas on fox 9 this Saturday morning during the 8 o'clock hour.  Hope you will tune in if you live in the twin cities area!


  1. Oh Jenni I like the idea of stenciling the canvases. Now I am thinking my dictionary page covered ones might have competition. The mantel looks great.
