Fall is definetely in the air, and as hard as it is to bid adieu to summer, the next few months certainly make up for it with their ever changing beauty. This mantel in my den was just screaming out for some fall love, so I created this fun fall fireplace mantel to get ready for the changing season.
Many of my pumpkins were purchased on clearance (in years prior), or from the dollar store and spray painted. Since I’m not a huge fan of using the traditional orange pumpkin, spray paint is a great and inexpensive alternative to getting the look you want. Stacking the pumpkins allows for more visual height; plus, it look super cool.
I usually like clean and modern fireplaces, but this one was installed when the house was built (40 years ago), and I don’t have the heart to tear this out; so we have no choice but to embrace its rustic style.
This pretty and chippy leaded glass frame was rescued by my mother. I love how the fall wreath (purchased for $3.99 at a thrift store last year) complements the window. I also used this window all summer as part of my outdoor dining space, featured here.
This awesome slate tile was purchased at the Dollarama for $2.00. I absolutely LOVE it, because it can easily be changed up for any season/style. Just don’t make fun of my horrible attempt at drawing an acorn and leaves……Lol.
My multi-purpose chalkboard also came out to play for this display. A cute fall message and picture was added using a chalk pen (which I’m absolutely gaga over, btw). The banner was made using some scrapbook paper I had lying around and some jute twine. See? It totally pays off to be a hoarder. Lol.
Well, that’s it for today’s post. I’ll be back again later this week. See you then 😉
