Wild Fall Mantel

In the Spring I created a mantel display that used a crazy tangle of grapevines, bees, butterflies and flowers. In the center I used a Graphics Fairy design that I applied with a Sharpie.
This Fall, I hated to take down the vines and so I added even more vines and replaced the Spring bits with pinecones, leaves and gourds. 

My father in law found these fantastic gourds in the shed of their house when he moved in. He gave them to me, I cleaned them up and applied some spray poly to give them a bit of sheen. I love them and use them every year.

You can really see the tangle of vines in this picture.

This look isn’t for everyone but I think of Fall as a bit wild anyway. Leaves falling, rainstorms, snowstorms (in some places), wind, hot-cold-hot (sometimes in the same day)…..it seems to fit the season for me.

The best thing is that it only took about 15 minutes to change out the whole mantel.
It took three times that long to get good pictures!!

Monday I’ll show you some more of the living room decorations……

I’ve added a Storenvy button in the sidebar….you’ll find the Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint supplies there…..

  3. Oh I love your wild mantle display! I am known as the grapevine queen by my friends, and love using grapevine in my decor. Anyhoo, I am a new follower.

  4. maybe if I had some cool gourds like that I would remember where I put away my (fake) gourds 3 years ago! This is the perfect fall mantle.
