April Showers Mantle

April Showers bring May Flowers.  At least that's what they say.  I'm hoping so at least.  I planted some of said May Flowers and then the Showers began.  And they continue...and continue. It should be a beautiful May! Nonetheless, I had to celebrate this beauty of rain in my home so let me introduce my April Showers Mantle!
It's hard to see, but there are little "raindrops" falling from the clouds and ceiling. Here are a few more photos to get the idea of the whole thing: 

The clouds are made from polyfill and fishing line. I just tied the fishing line around a small portion of the polyfill taped it to the ceiling.  The drops of water are glass beads from the Dollar Tree.  I hot glued the fishing line to the back of them and then attached with tape as well to the ceiling. 

This is a creamer and pitcher set that we got for our wedding.  I totally forgot I had it.  We never use it, so d├ęcor it becomes! 

I hope you enjoy and stay dry!
