Fall Mantel 2012

I was so excited to decorate my mom’s mantel this year, since I don’t have one of my own!  Remember how we made over her living room a few months ago?  I was excited to dress up her newly white mantel for fall – and I’m loving how it turned out!

That wreath in the middle is really the show-stopper here, and it was a beast and a half to make.  BUT I’m loving the end product, and I’m loving that it can be used over and over again over many different seasons.

I re-used the fall letter frames from last year’s mantel:

The pinecone garland was bought at a yard sale for $1 a few years ago:

The copper pot was a planter for some bulbs a few years ago:

All of the corn husks were bought from a local farm:

What do you think of my fall mantel this year?  Leave a link to your fall mantels – I’d love to see them!

  1. Hi Christina: This is a gorgeous mantel. You are right–the book-page wreath is definitely a show-stopper–I love it! The fall letter frames are a pretty pretty idea as well.

  2. Awe, wish I had a mantel to decorate! Love it Christina! 🙂

  3. So very pretty! I love how the bookpages in the wreath and the fall sign tie everything together. Lovely!

  4. Love it, Christina! Your mom’s pretty lucky to have you around to decorate for her 🙂

  5. That wreath is just lovely! Makes me want to go pull out my glue gun and make one for myself. I have a very small hymnal that we used at the church I attended growing up – it would make a really small version of that – I just might do it!

  9. Beautiful mantle! Beautiful wreath!

  10. Oh how beautiful!!! You did a great job on your wreath!!!! It looks so elegant! Nicely done!

  11. Awesome! It would also be cool to spray paint the wreath lightly in a tea color or with that spray mist stuff…

  12. I love it Christina! You’re right, that wreath is stunning! I love how you used the book pages in the frames too. Ties it all together nicely. 🙂

  13. What a beautiful mantel! I really like the framed FALL letters!

  19. This is such a great idea. I also dried some hydrangeas a couple of weeks ago, and would love to do a frame like this.
    Would be great for Christmas too. Thanks for sharing.
