Our Fall Mantle

As much as I loved summer this year, I’ve finally embraced the idea that fall is here and changed out our  summer mantle from sand and shells to a fall mantle with pumpkins and pinecones!  Since we don’t have a fireplace, our mantle is a console table that sits in our  entryway-anything works, right?!  I love bringing in those warm fall colors to signal that it’s time to get cozy!

I started with a piece of burlap that I cut into a runner, added some Target mercury glass candlesticks and votives, mini pumpkins from Hobby Lobby and pinecones that I added some sheen to with gold spray paint.

    I like the added gold spray paint. So cute. Working on ours. . . almost done. Slowly but surely.

    It's beautiful Megan! I am ready to bring fall in here too now that it's a bit cooler. Just trying to find the time.

    Very pretty, Megan! The gold spray paint is a nice touch and I like the pine cones you've added. Hope you had a great weekend!

    I don't have a mantel either…I use the top of my TV armoire. Love what you did with the burlap, and those mercury glass candlesticks are very cool!!

    See you at the party, Megan!

    Beautiful! We don't have a mantle in our home either, and I LOVE your idea of creating this fall fabulous-ness on a console table! I'll have to try and get creative when the weather feels a little more fall like outside for us πŸ™‚

    Very nice. I like how it’s festive, but not overpowering!

    i love that ginormous looking vase in the center! adding some gold to the pine cones-brilliant!
