Fall Mantel 2016

Hey friends!  
I'm here to share my Fall Mantel today!

I know everyone is so excited to decorate for Christmas.  
Don't get me wrong, I'm excited too.
But I love the Fall!

Decorating my mantel makes me so happy!

So here it is all dressed up for Fall!

My favorite part of the mantel is this letterboard!
Letterboards are so popular right now 
and I'm thrilled to have one!
I got it at Hobby Lobby and I LOVE IT so much!! 

I added a little Fall/Thanksgiving message.
This is such a beautiful time of year to reflect on 
just how blessed we really are.

I used darling long stem pumpkins, some cotton stems in a vase, 
my vintage chalkboards, and a wooden leaf tray I've had for years.

Gotta love some cotton stems!!

I made 2 super quick and banners to go 
along the bottom of the mantel.

The fall dollar spot items were on 90% off clearance 
at Target over the weekend, so I picked up these chipboard leaves.  
They were $.30.  Can't beat that!
I hot glued them to some cotton string.

I also hot glued white and black pom poms to string.  

Made for some cute, layered banners.

I can't get enough of these long stem pumpkins.
I'll be so sad to throw them out at the end of the season!

And there's my Fall Mantel!
