Pumpkin Seeds Fall Mantel

empty frames, cotton branches

With Fall and a home tour almost here, it was time for me to change my Summer mantel. I wanted to mix white and earthy tones not only on the mantel but around the whole house to greet the new season.

What I had in mind was something totally different that I couldn't put together.

Have you been there?

You think of something and try it out, but have to let it go because you couldn't put the whole thing together. Then,
you begin thinking about something else, but that first idea keeps on bugging you!

Hmmm I was there.

Plan B came without even thinking about it while spending time with my daughter in her bedroom.

Yep, it was there, in her bedroom, where this vintage printer's letterpress drawer-tray was being used and POP, the idea came. She let me use it, but I have to give it back to her when the season's over. ;)

little pumpkins, acorns, pinecones, mantel, fall

From there it was a matter of finding little Fall things to display in it.
The pumpkin seeds sign was one of my last year's projects, you can find the graphics right HERE.

Empty frames and some cotton and other branches made the balance on the other side.

My collection of old bottles came into play too. This amber Clorox bottle was my latest find.

This is a pumpkin seeds fall mantel, I had to include some pumpkin seeds! :)

I couldn't leave the cute pumpkin garland, I found at Ross, inside a container, nope. I'm so glad I brought it out, it makes me smile to see all those cuties one after the other.

  2. Love everything but seriously need that pumpkin garland! I will decorate for fall before we leave the last week of September. I can't wait! But I will since we are just now dropping out of the 90s! Already painting ugly ceramic pumpkins!
