Here is my fall mantel (at least the first draft - no fresh pumpkins for sale here yet)
Cute free printable artwork from the Internet
Philip was thrilled to see this up there (football is, after all, a pretty big part of fall)
I picked these frames up at a second hand store for 25 or 50 cents a piece a while ago, with just this type of thing in mind
This frame was a trash rescue that I painted. The piece of wood is the back side of the paneling artwork I did a while ago, which is normally displayed in our back hall
I bought these two pieces at Goodwill a few months ago for $1.99 a piece
I Love this "D" that I got at Old Thyme Pottery
The cupboard door was pulled out of some one's trash a couple weeks ago. (It was hunter green and I painted it and distressed it a little). The pumpkins/gourds are from Walmart, 97 cents a piece.
My fall wreath...
I've had the foam wreath for a while. I wrapped it in a brown tutu (left over from my sugar and spice selling days), glued it on and wrapped it with a ribbon.
I recently acquired a ton of brown paper bags at the Commissary and looked online to see what sort of cool stuff I could make out of them. When I came across this (the world's easiest) tutorial to make a little gnarled brown paper tree, I was delighted and it ended up being the perfect thing to complete my wreath!
Happy Fall, Y'all!
