I have lots to share with you guys today, so be prepared for a longer than usual post!
The fall mantel that I created this year has green touches on it....a color I don't normally use very much of in my fall decorating.
I like for things to balance......lol....so I have pretty much the same thing on each side of my Pumpkin Patch sign.
On the left side I have a couple of pumpkins.....one of them carries on more of the green color.....more ferns....and a really pretty sunflower print that I got free!
I'll share where I got the free prints at the end of my post......they are gorgeous!
Now for a look at the other end of the mantel......it's almost the same as the left side except the sunflower print is different.
The lovely green velvet pumpkins I have on the mantel came from Hobby Lobby. I only found 2 of them after looking at 3 different HL's so I don't know if they are just scarce in my area or everywhere.
The colors on the prints that Andrea is giving away on her blog are so soft and pretty.....just the way I love to decorate for fall.
Did I mention that this post is pretty long....lol!
There is so much already going on in the family room that I made the vignette on the coffee table very simple......a pot of white chrysanthimums and a white pick up with a pig riding in the bed.
The big pink and cream buffalo check pumpkins on each side of the fireplace are new. H made them using some left over plywood from a shelving project he made me in the studio.
I drew the pumpkins directly on the plywood and H cut them out......
Then he sprayed the plywood with 3M adhesive......laid my fabric over it.....smoothed out the fabric and then used a razor blade to cut away the excess fabric.
I wrapped the stem with some ribbon that I've had forever and don't remember where it came from A good sub would be to cover the stem with burlap.
H screwed a couple of left over pieces of 2 x 4 on the back of the pumpkin to make it free standing.
