Happy weekend everyone!!!
As I venture through blogland I see so many beautiful mantles.
Oh I long for my old mantle over the fireplace.
We have a fireplace in our new home but it is a corner unit and hard to decorate.
SOOOOOOO Folks here is my mantle/shelf all decorated for fall.
Let's start with my flower arrangement.
I pulled out my beautiful sunflowers from last year.
If you look closely you will see the cute bee that I glued on.
Not just an ordinary arrangement , no not me I picked up a branch from the yard
and went about adding a few cotton balls . I used small styrofoam balls and some cotton
that was left over from another project. Very simple, just glue the cotton to the ball and then
glue to the branch.
Looks like I have been to the cotton fields and picked it fresh.
Next I added a corn stalk, love the texture of the silk tops.
Hmmm!!! What else can I find in the yard. This is a flower??? or weed?? But again
I loved the gray/green and the texture of the plumes.
Next I added the Indian corn , a worn out crow.........
a cute little crocheted pumpkin that I whipped up and lastly (Now no judging)...
I painted or tried painting a sunflower.
Well folks here's my shelf that runs the perimeter of our great room.
I used a wee section of it to decorate for Fall.
Over the couch I display a few of my antiques..
Hope you enjoyed my fall version of a mantle.
As always I love for you to stop by. Leave a comment....
