My Fall Mantle and Fall Scripture & Subway Art Printables

I’m not big on Halloween decorating. There are no skulls, spiders, witches or ghosts around my house. Don’t get me wrong, I love seeing other’s homes all decked, but we’re never home on Halloween, so it seems like a bit of a waste to me. I have, however, found that I really enjoy decorating for FALL. Now I don’t call myself a “decorator” by any means. I usually leave that to this lovely lady. But alas, she can’t do everything for me, so I hope I’ve done her proud with my newly decorated Fall mantle.

Don’t ya just totally dig the mirror? It was a beautiful old wondow that my personal decorator gave to me, and I just had a mirror put in it. (Please ignore the ugly red brick fireplace. I haven’t yet worked up the guts to paint it white. I just can’t decide if I’m ready to make that kind of commitment…what do you think? To paint, or not to paint???)

I decided not to buy anything new this year, so everything you see was from shopping the house and pulling out things I used last year.

I created a couple of printables in Photoshop, and put them in frames that I already had. The handprint turkey came with the frame. Just kidding! It’s my son’s from last year. I love to personalize this space with photos or other kid-made items.

If you would like them, I’ve included the digital files. Just click on the image to enlarge, right click and save. Print size is 5″ x 7″ for the scripture, and 8″ x 10″ for the subway art.

For PERSONAL USE ONLY. Not to be claimed as your own or sold for profit. Thank you.

If you’re new here, welcome! I’m glad you’re here!! Feel free to take a look around and let me know if you like what you see. I’ve had a couple of requests, so I’ve added a place for you to subscribe to my blog. Hope to see you back real soon!

    I really like your blog–I’m going to start following you! And thanks for your sweet words about my Twinkie Mummies! :) PS: Paint the fireplace! I’m about to paint mine white, as well. –Erin at inbetweenlaundry.blogspot.com

    Your mantle looks great! I love how you layered the frames in front of your mirror. Your son’s turkey is so sweet! We’ve got dark reddish brick too on our fireplace, but I know hubs would never agree to paint it! Especially since the chimney goes all the way up to our 23′ cathedral ceiling!

    Love the printables, but I am having a hard time getting the “Give Thanks” to download. Do you have any suggestions or could you send it to me in a n email. I want to make this for my 84 year old neighbor, Hilda, who has a birthday coming up soon.

    I love your blog by the way, and I spent a few hour reading it after I found it yesterday.

    You really are so clever! I have filed your subway family values away for a future project! One of my favourite quotes at the moment is “Come What May, and Love It!” (Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin). Do you have any ideas (seeing as I am creatively challenged:)) for displaying this around the house? Thanks again for all of your fabulous ideas:)

    Love your printables, Kristin, thank you! That’s a great frame you used for the large one. I have a brick fireplace in my small den and thought I’d paint it once many years ago, but I wound up not doing it. It kind of grew on me {mine goes up to the ceiling} and I painted the walls a different color, which I think helps. If you hate it that much, I would think about covering it up with some molding or wood that you make look like trim and just leave a bit of it showing.

    I kinda like the idea of leaving the brick, find an accent color and paint the wall around it so it doesn’t look as stark, and then hunt for an old mantle top (antique or reclaimed barn wood or something) to go across the top of your brick so you have a deeper place to put pretty things to show us.

    Love your mantle, the printables are great! Just found you from pinterest!
