Rustic Fall Mantel

I am so excited to be back again this Fall with some amazing bloggers to show you my rustic fall mantel.

I love the lazy day’s of Summer but as soon as school started and the heat wave began, Fall can’t come fast enough.  The evenings and mornings are becoming a bit cool, I can feel the crisp Autmumn weather just around the corner, I can’t wait.

Natural elements, faux pumpkins, candles, apples, owls and pears combined with pops of color make for a cozy environment. Perfect for any cool autumn night around the fireplace.

I added the Red Velvet Plum Blossoms into the clear Barcelona Vase from World Market to bring in color.

I found these adorable owls at World Market,  you can add a votive candle in the back so they can shine at night!

I can’t wait for the real pumpkins to go on sale so I can start decorating the rest of the house!

Get ready for more amazing FALL inspiration full of creative craft ideas and plenty of autumn abundance over the next few weeks during our Autumn Abounds party!  September 9th to the 27th, we will be sharing our own inspiring Fall creations and We’ll be wrapping it up with a huge FALL Linky Party and amazing giveaway with a $1,000.00 prize package, woo hoo!

So far we have had the ever so talented Jennifer Rizzo show us how to paint a pumpkin on canvas with a step by step tutorial with pictures.  I could actually do this!
