Rustic Fall Mantel
Sep 25th, 2012 | By Denise Biggins | Category: Home & Food Blogs
Today I am showing the mantel I put together for fall.
I saw a great deal on these wood planter boxes, so I picked up two- one for decorating with, and the other to finally put on our house!
(that seems more like a summer project, doesn’t it? Hey, when opportunity knocks….)
This one was $7.
I know I can use it for lots of other projects, so it was a bargain!
I added in the grapevine wreath from last year, and then worked on filling up the planter box with pumpkins and gourds.
The fall grass was an amazing deal from the Dollar Tree.
Most of their floral looks like it cost a dollar. (!)
But this was one of the best deals for something I will use a lot!
I cleaned out what they had at one of their locations here in town.
(sorry- that was probably a bit hoarderish of me- I just knew it wouldn’t last if I waited to get more down the road!)
A demijohn with some feather plumes.
The fall banner that I made last year, is here again.
A gothic font printed on sheet music; the ends both have a leaf cut out of the middle. All hung with mini clothespins.
The black really tied into the fall look.
Simple, rustic, and colorful.
A bit different from our dining room look.
Like the dining room, it’s been fun to look back and see how my style has changed over the last couple years.
You can see last year’s here.
