The weather is officially fall like here in WI so I decided I would pull out my fall decor this weekend.
I wanted to go a little natural and use some different colors than the normal orange, red, and yellow so I shopped my house, indoor and out, and came up with this set up for our faux mantle, mantle.
After putting things up and taking things back off, rearranging a few times, I LOVE how it turned out.
Let's take a closer look shall we.
On the right side of the mantle I placed the wine carrier I made at SNAP a few years ago that I had in my craft room. Then I placed one of my apple gourds in it and the some hydrangea blooms from the garden.
I also had a white plastic pumpkin, for years now, and placed that on the mantle along with more blooms.
In the center, I hung a new wreath I created, which I will share soon, and then this little easel chalkboard where I tried my hand at hand lettering "Happy Fall" on it though it looks pretty bad. lol
I'm sure I will try to rewrite it better 10 more times before I put my fall decor away. haha
Then more awesome hydrangea blooms.
Next to the chalkboard on the left, I placed another apple gourd and more blooms.
I stood up an arrow, which I will also share later, up behind the gourd for a little height next to the wreath and that rounds out the mantle.
Simple, natural and it has the farm house look.
I loved shopping the house and using my hydrangea blooms, we have 3 different types in our garden, to make this mantle.
How do you like to decorate for fall?
Traditional colors or do you like to use different colors?
