Mom's Fall Mantel Evolution

A few weeks back, I got to spend some time at my parent's house for some R&R. My mom had begun to spruce up the house for Fall and her mantel was beginning to evolve for the season. She made some beautiful fabric pumpkins for the mantel, added some warm colored accents and fall leaves, and was on her way to being decorated for the changing season.

The beginnings of a Fall spruce-up!
These fall pumpkins are of the "no-sew" variety. My favorite kind of project!
While I was at my parent's house, my mom wanted me to change things up on her mantel. She was ready for a new look. We took everything down, borrowed some decor from around the house and re-spruced for Fall. It's fun to change things up! Here's what we came up with:

A weathered ceiling tile and two heavy, brass trays make a beautiful, graphic start to the mantel redo. Glass apothecary jars filled with various Fall inspired objects round out the display.

We were both pleased with the end result and my mom was happy for something new. Sometimes it just takes a fresh pair of eyes to re-imagine your old items
