I didn’t think I would ever get in the groove but Fall decorating is finally happening at our house!
The name of the game this year is simple and cheap (a recurring theme around here) and the most obvious place to start was the new fireplace.
I’m proud to report I only spent $6 on this year’s mantle. Everything you see except the cornstalks was in my prop closet (aka the basement bedroom I took over for storing all my pretties). And if I were a patient woman I could have gotten the corn for free from a local farmer but obviously I’m not. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
So first let’s talk about my inspiration. Check out this perfectly simple Pallet Wall Art from Allison over at The Golden Sycamore.
I fell in love with it the minute I pinned it and knew I wanted to recreate the same clean, modern-rustic feel for my mantle. I already had the DIY wood backdrop so it was time to start layering some Fall on top of it.
Hanging wall vases and corn stalks. (The vases were a gift from my cousin but the labels say Home Interiors if you’re looking for a set.)
A wreath that’s survived years and years of use and a yellow garland for one more pop of color against the dark wood.
And letters printed and cut out of cream colored scrapbooking paper.
That’s it. Super simple. Super cheap. My kind of project.
Are you decorating for Fall? I feel like I’m the last one to start but the good news is I’m really on a roll now. I have a new Fall chalkboard and an updated bookshelf to share next week. And maybe some window boxes too. Until then I’m raising my Pumpkin Spice Latte to you – cheers!
