here last Friday.
Most of the stuff that was on the mantel stayed, I just made a few minor tweaks. I broke out the birch candles and brought in some sticks that I striped the leaves off of to replace the white flowers I had in the tall vase. I also put a strip of burlap around the vase.
Here's the whole mantel:
The only things I had to spend money on were the corn husks and the pumpkin on the left. It came from the dollar store and I painted it white.
As you can see, I kept things pretty simple, but it satisfied the itch I had for doing a little seasonal decorating.
