This year I wanted something simple and easy to remove/replace when cleaning. I am still on the lookout for the perfect item for the area above the mantel. It is a large area and I cannot decide if I need a mirror, clock or something else. I had a huge clock picked out but I am afraid that it would not stand out enough against the dark rock. What do you think I need?
On the right side of the mantel is a lantern that is a family heirloom and the wood decor I picked up from Hobby Lobby a while back.
On the left is another burlap tree that I made and another white & gold pumpkin that I spray painted. The orange and red pumpkins came in that pack I mentioned above from Wal-Mart. The frame with the "P" I made myself and you can find that tutorial here. All the leaves were part of a garland that I cut to sections.
Just wanted simple and easy. I think I hit that spot on. I was not sure how the white pumpkins were going to fit in. Last year I did alot of black and honestly, it blended in with the rock on the fireplace too much. The rock is dark almost blue/black with lighter white/gold variations. The name of the rock is Black Regency. This time I wanted something that was going to stand out and contrast with the rock and this definitely does that!
Have you started decorating for fall?
