Fall Mantel {and a Sunflower Wreath}

This year I decided to stick with decorations I all ready had in my Fall bins. It's amazing how much stuff you accumulate over time and then forget about!

 The wreath I made a few years ago. You can find the simple tutorial for it here. The twine pumpkins were a Target dollar spot find from last year. I'm not sure where the candles came from.

 The lantern is a leftover from our wedding centerpieces. I slipped in a few artificial leaves and gourds to give it a bit of color. The fall picture was a Goodwill find from a few years back. My only decorative splurge for the season was the bundle of wheatgrass that I snagged at Home Goods for $12.99.

The framed "N" was a quick DIY project I made last fall, while the candlesticks were something I had on my mantel from this summer. The ceramic pumpkins that are perched on top are from Garden Ridge a few years back. I absolutely love the pinecone cluster. Aidan and I found it on a nature walk last summer.


I made this Fall Sunflower Wreath last Fall. I found a bunch of different colored sunflowers at the Dollar Tree, cut off their leaves and stems, then glued them to a wreath form.


It brings a lovely, bright pop of color into our breakfast room!


And a few more pictures....

This angle really shows just how bright this wreath is.

 Do you have your home decorated for fall yet?

Thanks for stopping by.  :)

P.S. Have you entered my giveaway for a Vintage Tweet necklace from one of my favorite Etsy shops, Mama's Nest Designs? It's open until September 31st!
