Now that my owl painting is finished I'm on to accessorizing the house for fall. I dug out my fall decor from the garage and edited it for the mantle. The mantle is less than a year old, so I've never decorated it for fall. If you'd like to see how I made it go here.
I never get away from my starfish. I include them in all my seasonal decor. I'm at the beach a couple times a week playing volleyball year round so the beach is always near and dear to my heart. For Fall I embellished my starfish with Grandma's old costume earrings and tied them with some twine to my hurricanes. I filled the hurricanes with some costume pearl necklaces, shells, and dried branches. I used a burgundy colored candle to tie into the fall foliage in my owl painting.
On the other side of the mantle I added one of my columns and the matching hurricane, another glass container filled with fall inspired stuff - drift wood, feathers, shells, and a conch shell. I think the texture and colors go nicely with the owl colors.
I added a faux vine and my white pumpkins.
I sat my pumpkins on a feather boa for contrast and texture.
Along the side of my fireplace I placed some golden glazed pottery and a basket of wood for texture.
I placed a large faux pumpkin on the column in the corner for some more fall color.
I have more to show you but that's another post. I'm linking this up to
