It is that time of the year that I LOVE! I love the season of fall and ALL of its wonderful colors, sounds and feel. I love to bring all the great colors of fall into my home decor. I have started with the mantel. Decorating the mantel is one of my favorite things to decorate in my home. I love to decorate the mantel because it is the one place that I can change every season and it is the main focal point in the our living space. The mantel allows me to decorate creatively or as simple as I would like.
Here is a photo of my empty mantel.
I love the cut out above the fireplace. This is original to the home and the rest of the living area has these same arches. It took a long time to find the perfect sized clock to fit in this space. There are times that the cut out makes decorating a bit difficult. I started the fall decorating with a D.I.Y. nature frame, you can read about this here.
As I stated above that the arch can be difficult at times to decorate with, so I found a creative way to cover it up. Most of these fall items I had on hand from earlier years. I like to be creative and move things around and use items from other home decor areas. I made the “Autumn Quote” frame, purchased the wreath and the pop corn kernel, everything else I had on hand.
