I've had a really hard time putting my fall decor out. But, I did finish my mantel, and I'm pretty happy with it.
Everything on the mantel I already had in my stash.
See that little burlap pumpkin? Bet you'd never guess that's a plastic grocery bag inside. Or that it's a pumpkin.
I just laid out a square piece of burlap, crumpled up a grocery bag and gathered up the burlap around it. I wrapped twine around the top and then just tucked the end. I took my scissors and slowly trimmed the burlap at the top of the stem. Yes, folks, it was that easy.
The urn is one of my favorite fall pieces. I've had it for about four years and it's been part of my fall decor all over the house. I just topped it with some moss and a little wooden pumpkin from Michaels. Vintage bottles are part of my growing collection.
Remember when I talked about my 10 Must-Try Fall Projects? Well, Kate took pity on me and gave me one of her vintage anatomy prints. It's about as close to Halloween decorations as we are going to get!
So there you have it, my "I'm pretending it feels like fall even though it's 90 degrees" Fall Mantel!
A lot of people have emailed asking for a photo tutorial on the canning jar lid wreath I used to make the Junkin' Pumpkin. Never fear, I'll be posting it next week!
