When I first decorated my mantle I thought it looked good, but needed a little something. Therefore I started designing my own banner to print and add to it. Ben took one look and volunteered to improve my design. Here is a before and after of the mantle once it was added.
And here is a printable for you to make your very own! Simply click on it, print it out, cut it out and tape it to your favorite fall colored ribbon!
And don't forget the fall candy, it is vital!
I just got these fall place mats at Burlington Coat Factory (alas the pumpkin I don't recall where it came from, I've had it for quite a while).
I love this window box! In fact I need more decorations for it! The wreath on the left came from the Dollar Tree a few years ago, the leaves on the bottom from Big Lots and the little scarecrow on the bottom is a hand-me-down from my mom! :)
One last glimpse at my favorite new mantle! The flowers on the left are from Big Lots. The pumpkin in the middle I just found in the dollar spot at Target and the lantern on the right we got for reenacting at Home Goods a few years ago. Also, more fall leaves probably from Big Lots also, but not sure.
I hope you are having as much fun as I am embracing the fall season!!!
