I have to be honest I am not one who decorates for the seasons. Typically, I am too busy to fuss over that type of stuff. However, this year I am inspired to make my home fall-ish. Rather then going out and buying stuff of course I made it all homemade and “shopped” my house. This whole redo cost me $0.
First I removed a Ducks Unlimited picture that was hanging in the center and leaned an old mirror up on our mantel. I decorated it with a fun Fall Bunting from material I had laying around the house. To give you an idea of how old some of this material is the ribbon is from my sister’s wedding (6 years ago) ha! The bunting triangles are 7” wide and 9” long.
The ducks are apart of our fabulous duck collection- did you catch the sarcasm? I actually like the ducks but not all year round.
My son and I collected the acorns (lots of them here in NC) then I found in my stash a blank frame with a heart center. Ugh, must have been a Valentine’s project I never go too… oops!!
At first I was not thrilled about it having a heart shape center, but then it grew on me, because I love the fall!!
Here is another close up!
Here is the WHOLE fireplace. This was one of the selling points to our home and it has also been one of the hardest things to decorate. Although, I have to give myself some credit, I think I did okay this time.
I might have some other fall decoration ideas up my sleeve, but for now I am pleased with the $10 I have spent on my mantel $0 and my fall felt wreath to make my home look seasonal!
Thanks for stopping by!
