Are you ready for some pumpkin fun? If you can't tell by all my previous fall posts, I love pumpkins and have been working on one pumpkin project after another. The only thing that could make all this pumpkin fun better is to have a mantle. I long to be able to decorate a fall mantle but since that isn't an option right now I will stick with my side table and make the most of it. Can you believe I made most of those decorations? I know, I'm still in shock myself.
Let's start with the things I didn't make. My favorite find by far is that black glitter tree. I picked it up at Ross for like $4. You can't beat that and it fits perfectly with my style which is not very traditional. I also bought the little wooden bird and two small metallic pumpkins at Ross. The only other thing I haven't crafted up is the gold frame... yet. I have big plans for that frame but for now I think it gives my not so fall mantle a nice touch and much needed height.
I'm loving all the mix of texture from this fall display. Surprise, Surprise. We have shiny and glittery from my painted pumpkins to rustic and neutral in the twine pumpkin. I think though it is the book pumpkin that helps to pull the whole look together. I know that the LOVE sign was created for Valentine's Day but I just couldn't take it down. My goal was to make my holiday decor flow easily into my everyday decor and this sign fits right in with both.
Do you like how my apothecary jars are mostly empty? Ya me too. I can't keep them filled for the life of me and it is only the two of us. I'm scared to keep refilling them, that's a lot of candy to eat without meaning to.
The best part of this pumpkin fun is that I can leave this faux fall mantle up for another two months and just add a thing here or there to make it more Halloween like or progress into Thanksgiving.
How do you decorate for fall? What colors do you like to use? Have no fear though, my pumpkin days are not behind me yet. I have at least one or two more projects in the works for other display areas:)
