Fall is almost here!!! Can you believe it?
This week I started to put together my fall mantle. I don’t know about you, but our stores are not selling any pumpkins, gourds, etc. yet, so I currently only have my faux items out. I’m sure in a couple weeks I will tweak it, but here is my current fall mantle.
You can see I incorporated some of the other countdown to fall goodies I’ve shared…
my burlap and corn husk pumpkins.
I filled my Pottery Barn’ish mason jar holders with cinnamon sticks…
and some faux pumpkins and gourds I spray painted heirloom white…
Strung across my mantle is my Martha inspired corn husk garland .
I used the same technique of soaking the corn husks in warm water for a few minutes before folding them in half.
Then I used some floral wire (about 3-4 inches long)
and twisted it around the corn husk to keep it folded.
Then I used the remainder of the wire to attach the folded corn husk to the twine.
I have to admit this took a while… between soaking batches of corn husks, cutting wire and twisting, but it’s worth it and it’s something I can save and use for years to come.
So how are you Counting Down to Fall?
I’d love to see your fall goodies… recipes, decor, crafts, traditions… inspire us!
This party is simple… just link up!
As long as it’s fall related you can join in!
