Presto Chango into fall

Image

This has been my summer mantel since the baby shower decor was taken down. Pretty boring, huh?

A seasonal change is a comin’. I found this very old oval frame at a flea market last month, and this little scroll with one of my favorite scriptures on it was a couple of dollars at a yard sale. The frame was in pretty bad shape, so I did not hesitate to get out the twine, burlap, and glue gun.

I made a few loops of natural and white burlap, added some leaves, and twisted some jute twine around the frame and added some braided rope. I like the textures, don’t you?

Next, I found some rusty flower tins in the basement, added some sheer bronze fabric ribbons and dried florals to the votives I already had. The little wooden pumpkins were purchased at a wonderful gift shop called Boomland Square several years ago and have been used as place card holders, cloche decor, and a number of other fall displays.

In less than 30 minutes, Presto-chango! I may need to play with the flower buckets a bit and scatter a few leaves or acorns around, but…better, don’t you think?
