I haven’t ever been one to decorate seasonally until recently but I decided no time was like the present to hop on the bandwagon! I’ve seen so many beautiful fall mantles on Pinterest and in the blog-o-sphere lately I was inspired to try my own.
Short of buying the minature pumpkins at Walmart on my last grocery trip, all of the decor I already had. I made the two of these wreaths last year as our previous rental had double doors. One is currently on the front door and I thought why keep the other in storage? I think it makes a nice centerpiece to the mantle! The vine pumpkin was a clearance purchase from Target a few years ago and the two wooden jack o’lanterns were from the dollar store.
I also started a couple new small paintings this weekend of pumpkins! Once they are dry enough to photograph I’ll share them with you, I’m really loving them. Sometimes its nice to do small paintings that I can finish in one or two sittings as opposed to burning out trying to finish a larger painting.
