1. Wild Wild West

Nothing say ‘Merica like a bandana! This mantle is a total homage to the Old West with the bandana garland and wreath, alongside the mason jar vases (not pictured here) and rustic looking wood sign. It looks handmade but with a designer’s touch.

2. Fireworks Mantle

Got sticks? Because a pile of them, some spray paint and a few vases are all you need to get this “fireworks” mantle for yourself! This is a great design if you want to go easy on the decor, but still create an eye popping statement.

3. Americana

It’s all about The Grand Ole Flag in this mantle design. The vase full of flags, flag wooden sign, the strategically arranged red, white and blue stars and the flag-themed garland really put the focus on America. If you love the flag as much as this designer, this mantle is for you!

6. God Bless America

This is probably my favorite mantle of this list, and mostly because I love all the little memorablia that signifies America. From the mini Statue of Liberty, to the baseball- this is America! And would you believe the banner is actually made from popsicle sticks!?

Make your own popsicle stick banner by following the tutorial over at TheCraftedSparrow.com.

7. A Day of Independence

This is my second favorite mantle because it has so much history! I love the small details like the old history books, eagle plate and the folded American flag. If you’re a history nut, this is your mantle.
