My big beautiful "B" monogram rarely leaves the mantle, but for fall there are some leaves blowing in the wind, winding through the B. I loved using my $1 old wooden spools for pedestals for candles and a gleaming white pumpkin. I like to keep my mantle fairly simple.
Want to make a fall centerpiece for five bucks? Try painting a thrift store frame, lining it with fabric, then adding a grocery store bag of mini pumpkins with assorted thrift store candlesticks and candles. Easy AND cheap!
This "art" (and I use that term loosely!) is just a canvas drop cloth cut up and stenciled with black craft paint. Again, easy holiday decor that doesn't compete with your color scheme.
Lastly, here's what greets our guests. My front door, again with a big "B" monogram, and "fake" pumpkin topiaries. If you'd like to know how I made these, click here.
A close up.
