Oh boy was I excited to start decorating for my favorite time of the year… FALL! Last week, up went my fall wreath full of turquoise pumpkins, and this past weekend I put together my fall mantel that I am excited to share with you all! I shared the main center piece of the mantel with you in the last post… my falling leaves rustic window. It was sitting up on the mantel feeling a bit lonely, but that was only temporarily for the other decorative components have arrived!
All the other components I already had on hand, some of which you may recognize. I wanted to keep in with the fall colors but with an added hint of teal.
The primitive pumpkin patch is no stranger. I shared it with you last fall. You can read all about it here. My milk bottle candles have made an appearance here and there. I had purchased them from a craft fair last summer and love keeping them around!
This teal jar I had purchased about a month or so ago from the World Market. I had seen it on It’s Overflowing with Creativity and I was sold! Jar+Teal = Vintage = L-O-V-E. And for $2.99, why not! So I bought two..hehe. Hey, it came in handy as part of the hint of teal!
The glittered gourds are also from last fall. I had used them in my table centerpiece. You can see the simple how to in this post along with the making of the jute tin. I was so obsessed with glitter blasting everything last year… couldn’t get enough of it! :D
Meet Jack! He’s been a part of the family for a few years. I couldn’t resist that sweet smile and just had to include him as part of my fall mantel. :D I think he’s just perfect where he sits!
With fall comes sweet nostalgia… A nostalgia I wanted to capture with my mantel. I hope I was able to achieve that for others as it has for me.
Let me know what you think. :)
