Fall Mantel


I took a little time this weekend to get my mantel ready for Fall.  Poor mantel - I completely skipped any Summer decoration for it this year.

I didn't do much - just picked up a few pumpkins and gourds from the farmers market and brought out a few seasonal pieces.  If you've been here for a while, you've probably seen these same things several times!

Here is an overall shot:



I made the wheat bundle last year.  You can find my tutorial right here.


The apothecary jars are almost always on my mantel - I just change out the fillers to reflect the season.  I left the top off of the one above, and put in a candle & nuts instead.

The pie pumpkin above is the prettiest shade of orange in person.


The small gourd is sitting on a glass candle stick - an easy way to add a little height.


I saved the nuts from last year because I knew I'd want to use them to decorate for Fall and they aren't out in bulk at the store yet.  I might be a little crazy!






And the left side...


More wheat on this side of the mantel.  I bought a few bunches, divided it into four sections, and tied each section with a piece of raffia.


I think gourds are so pretty and interesting.  The patterns are beautiful!














One last overall...


Yikes, I didn't realize I had so many photos.  Thanks for sticking with me!  I have to say, it sure feels good to be posting something other than Tasty Tuesdays.  I think I may have gotten my blogging mojo back.  We'll see.

Make sure to stop back later in the week - I will be hosting a giveaway!
