Fall is upon us…right? I mean football has started, pumpkins are out, mums are blooming, so even though the calendar doesn’t say that it is Fall, it is Fall to me! As soon as I saw pumpkins at the grocery this weekend, I knew I was ready to decorate my Fall Mantel. This may be my favorite mantel yet!
I painted this huge chalkboard last year for my The Notebook Inspired Valentine’s Mantel, and haven’t wanted to take it down…it’s so much fun to change with the seasons!
I wanted to draw a few fun pumpkins for Fall, and found the perfect tutorial oh how to paint a pumpkin on my friend Jennifer Rizzo’s Blog, and decided to follow her instructions, but draw mine instead. Her pumpkin painting is soooo super fabulous, I’m going to give it a try myself!
I had these wonderful wooden spools that I bought at a local Lexington store, Finders Keepers Market, and decided to stack some mini pumpkins on top of them for some fun pumpkin topiaries…cute, right?
I took down my fireplace screen and stacked a large copper boiler on top of an old painted army trunk. I placed my Kentucky Silhouette Dropcloth Pillow in front and added a couple of large pumpkins.
What do you think? Are you ready to decorate for Fall?
