fall mantel, take 2.

Hey guys! I’m back with yet another mantel makeover. A few weeks ago I went with a pretty rustic vibe by incorporating burlap, deer antlers and my DIY hayrides sign (now sold by the way!). I decided to scale it back a bit and use one of my newer DIY fall signs instead. I also picked up some mini pumpkins from the farmers market. Here’s how it turned out:

I love this sign because gets me thinking about Thanksgiving and gathering with good friends & family.

To make it, I did a similar distressing process to that of my DIY towel rack and simply traced and painted on the letters. From there, I gave it one last light sanding to make the letters look slightly worn to blend in with the newly distressed wood.

I’m always on the look out for old books with interesting covers and spines when I’m at garage sales and thrift stores.

What are you doing to add some fall flair around your house? — I’d love to hear about it!
