I love the colors of fall and was excited to bring them into my home, but I wasn't quite ready to let go of summer. So just as I did with my porch and tablescape, I left some of my summer elements on the mantel and incorporated some fall.
Here's the full shot of the mantel (along with the hideous tube TV and VCR, yes I said tube TV and V. C. R. and we aren't that old or far behind on technology. We just don't watch TV.)
Lets take a closer look at the lovely details:
I left out one of the framed sea shells and homemade starfish and added some pumpkins. I made a chevron panel in orange to add a pop of color as a backdrop. My houndstooth duct tape pumpkin is making an appearance again. The panel and pumpkin will make an easy transition to Halloween.
The other side features more pumpkins, seashells and some leaves on a frame.
Below on the hearth are some white pumpkins and a scattering of leaves and shells.
If you are interested in making your own chevron panel, here's how I did mine. And kudos to all of you that have done this before. It was harder than I thought. I used a 16 x 20 canvas, white and orange paint, a printable chevron template from Billie Monster, and painters tape.
