Mantle Makeover for Fall

The weather is cooling and becoming a little crisper. That can only mean one thing…..FALL is coming :)

Fall is my favorite and season and the house needed to be spruced up a bit for the change. It is so exciting to me to decorate during this time of year, because I feel that the warm tones of the season are my color.

The mantle was first on my decoration list and here it is.



Let’s take a closer look at some of the little favorite things that decided to use.


On the right, I used a few of my favorite little pumpkins.


These cute little pumpkins are putka pods.


Then I decided to take my beaded pumpkin and raise her up on a little thrift store find that got a make over with some ORB (oil rubbed bronze) spray paint.


Then I found a canning jar and filled it with lentils and used my decorative topper that I purchased several years ago at a craft show.

On the left side….


I love these cute little glass apothecary type jars and seldom pass one up at the thrift store. These are filled with navy beans!


This little dear deer was a thrift store purchase that was white ceramic before a coat of ORB.


And what mantle would be complete without a candle. This one was spruced up with an orange ribbon.

For the middle….


Not specifically fall, but our “G” that was purchased at Hobby Lobby (50% off, of course). It is paired with another thrift store frame.

Both have a coat of ORB :)

Intertwined among it all is a fall leaf garland like the ones you find at the dollar store.

I think that it is beautiful for now and will certainly be updated in the coming months as the holidays approach.
