I’m excited to be linking up to the It’s Fall Y’all party over at Layla’s today…. You have to go check out all the beautiful mantels that have linked so far.
When I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do for my fall mantel, I scanned Pinterest and some of my fav blogs for inspiration. I kept being drawn to the same elements… simple, symmetrical designs, and apples! When I think about fall, I think of some of my favorite memories & past experiences. When my hubby and I were first married, I always looked forward to a drive up the canyon to see the beauty of the trees changing color. Cool crisp air, white aspens/quakies everywhere, and the bright hues of red, orange and yellow dancing across the branches…
My inspiration translated to this simple, bright fall mantel scape:
9 small buttons (I used some brown and orange ones from JoAnns)
1 roll of jute twisted twine (I only used about 2 yards for the banner)
hot glue (there was no way I was going to take time to sew this baby!)
