It’s Fall Y’all…Fall Mantel 2012

Oh, how I love Fall…time for pumpkins, mums, falling leaves, college football, tailgating, nights outside by the fire…I could go on and on.  Fall truly is my favorite time of the year.  It may not officially be Fall on the calendar, but the first time the air gets crisp and I can hear the band playing at a football game, I am all in.
I love to decorate my mantel for the different seasons and holidays now, but to be honest, sometimes it puts me in a complete tailspin.  I envision something in my head, then cannot stop until it is just so.  This time, I knew I wanted urns for my mantel.  Two of them with ruffled burlap and pumpkins resting atop.  Alas, there were no urns to be found that fit in my budget or on my mantel, so I made my own using a plastic sundae cup and a cheap plastic flower pot.
I found an old wreath and covered with dollar store moss, then I added a coral polka dot ruffle flower. I love this Riley Blake fabric in rouge dots!  It’s my absolute favorite!  I added a stenciled burlap and fabric FALL banner to the top of my window in the same fabric.
I hot glued some burlap around one of my chalkboard painted wine bottles, painted some polka dots on, and added a little rolled flower rosette.
I made a sweet little polka dot pitcher and put some coral poppies in for an extra pop of color, added some little pumpkins, and threw in my wine cork K.
Happy Fall Y’all!  Too soon?
