Way back in September, Layla had her Fall Mantel Party. I really wanted to participate, but this little thing called WORK kept getting in the way. I’ve finally gotten around to decorating my fireplace mantel for fall. Phew, just in time to take it down and start thinking about Christmas!
I made a ruffled burlap runner out of scraps I had from my pillow project. It added a little softness to the hard brick (and I just love burlap). I used lots of nuts, pumpkins, and cinnamon sticks that I already had around the house.
I threw the grapevine ball in there, just because it worked with the color scheme and had a natural feel.
I added a few things I had on the mantel before and some felt pumpkins from a craft fair a few years ago. Not too bad for just “shopping the house” for a few fall items.
