Fall Mantle 2018

Long time coming but I thought I should at least share a bit of fall before Thanksgiving comes and goes! 

I put up fall decor early so I could enjoy it longer and I'm so glad I did. 
Here's a peek at our mantle fall decor this year... 



I left it light, airy and neutral this year with lots of vintage/antique touches. I loved the contrast between the flat focal point of the banner in the middle and then layering out the sides. 





One of these days I'll actually start giving you tutorials again... this large banner was a lot of fun to make and really pretty simple. 
You could make it no-sew if you didn't want to pull the sewing machine out too. 

The beautiful sunflower garland is from Hand Crafted Buffalo and I'm seriously obsessed with anything and everything she does. 
She has some beautiful Christmas garlands in the shop now too that are just so pretty! 

I twisted the garland around the top of the banner for a pretty pop of color. 


I literally brought in a pile of random objects from the fall decor bins and from my 'prop/decor' closet and just started layering until I loved the results. 
Tip- hoard old books :) 

I grab books when I can (a good stack of these came from a pile someone was throwing out curbside after a yardsale) and I ripped the spines off of them for a prettier, more vintage look. 
The truly vintage books are mostly ones handed down from my grandmother or ones I've picked up at thrift stores. 


I grabbed a couple of worn scraps of barn wood for layering and loved the effect it gave. I'll be keeping those guys in my decor hoarding pile for now on! 

The mini shutters were Goodwill finds forever ago that I painted white and keep on hand for various seasons. 
The brass candlesticks were also Goodwill finds from my Harry Potter Party a few years back and they come in quite handy pretty often. They were perfect for bringing in some cozy fall vibes. 


Again with my stacks of books that I obsessively hoard- I find myself constantly wishing I Had more though so I'll still be on the lookout :) 
A few burlap leaves tucked in randomly and several pumpkins from my stash finished off the layering nicely. 


I like to have symmetry on either side without completely mimicking each other so I used the same colors/tones and layering to imitate similar feels to either side. More books, candlesticks and pumpkins. 



I'll leave a source list below in case you had questions about other items! 
I'm excited to start sharing Christmas with you guys, my house is a touch Holiday confused at the moment with Christmas decor steadily sneaking in to various parts of the house. 

Hope you loved the quick peek, so sorry for the infrequent posts- keep up with me on Instagram and check my stories for various, impromptu tutorials :) 

Source List:
