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.
