|Before- A blank canvas…|
|After- A warm welcome!|
|I added some “Twilight twigs” so my mantel will have some sparkle and shimmer at night….|
|I added some basic silk flower branches in a vibrant orange/rust for a pop of colour….|
|A round lantern adds another shape to the mix for more interest…|
|A candle picks up the same colour tones as the flowers….|
|A few faux pumpkins are tucked into the lantern …|
|A few real mini pumpkins are added to the mantel…|
|A couple of white ceramic pumpkins( I found at a local grocery store for $6 /each) are added to either side of the mantel….|
|To add more interest and balance, a pair of white ceramic birds are tucked in by the pumpkins….|
|A berry garland tucked in amongst all the pieces adds wonderful texture and another burst of colour….|
|A sweet owl garland adds softness while spelling out the season….
Voila…..the mantel is complete!
|A few Reese’s Pieces in an apothecary jar add colour and fun on a scrapbook paper lined tray, on the end table…|
|A mosaic glass bowl becomes a great coffee table piece with the addition of a candle holder, some rattan spheres and some fall beaded garland.|
