Fall Mantel 2013
No better day than today to share my Fall Mantel, it is after all, the first day of Fall.
With a little bit of old and a little bit of new, I created my mantel. It looks so different with the new color in the room, which is a fantastic Fall accent in itself.
My wreath and my pendant banner are among the reused. The only thing I did was add a few feathers to the wreath, since they are “in” this fall.
The bunting banner I made last year out of things I had laying around. Still cute.
My white owl collection is new. And thanks to a great sale, I spent under $15 for all 3. The jug is a vintage find, and the spool is from last year too.
New to me this year, although I found it at an antique store, is this wooden black crate. It was $12, and I couldn’t pass up it’s rustic appeal. An acorn on a candlestick, a white pumpkin, and an old horseshoe round out the other end. And that’s it! I’m ready for the cooler weather, blankets, sweaters, fresh picked apples, a fantastic color display in the trees and pumpkins galore. Hoping you take the time to enjoy the season. Warm regards, Diane
