Woohoo who’s ready for Fall?! I know I’ve been talking about Fall since the beginning of the month, soooo, you know I am. :) This year for the Fall mantel I decided I was really digging textures and the rustic look, so that’s how the mantel ended up. Quite a difference from last year’s gold and glam mantel! But something about burlap and pretty textures always draw me in so I went for it and came up with this.
Then when my cousin was here she made these little thingies for the end of the mantel.
I’m not sure what to call them so let’s call them garland alternatives? I don’t know but I like them!
I had the vases already from last year, and of course my old winder and shutters, and I pulled out my giant acorns again and put on a pretty serving dish.
I did buy this gold mercury glass pumpkin at Homegoods though. Couldn’t resist.
I have another one just like it living on our entry table for that Fall display. :)
I made a very simple Fall banner and used a stencil I already had and some bronze craft paint. Then connected it all with a little twine. So easy!
And here’s a few more beauty shots for you.
And that’s it! Whatcha think? It feels so cozy to me. I wish you all could come have some coffee or tea with me and sit by our fake mantel and enjoy it with me. :)
What look are you going with this year? Sharing this post at Thrifty Decor Chick’s Mantel Party.
