I didn’t get a chance to create a fall mantel last year so you can guess how excited I was that Michaels had their Lowest Prices of the Season sale recently and I got a nice haul of items at amazing prices.
We had just finished painting the room as well, perfect opportunity to finish the room off with new mantel decor.. well I reused the candle sticks from my Winter Mantel set up. Makes for an easy transition into the next season :)
Charger plates, florals, and bird cages, and nest like mini wreath were all bought from Michaels.
The wooden hearts were a gift from someone and they added in quite nicely. The larger cage I stuffed with large potpurri and topped it off with flowers that I pulled from their stems.
The small bird cage fits the smaller blush coloured flowers and sat perfectly in the mini wreath.
I had a box of mason jars that I wasn’t using and painted the insides to got with the colour theme. I kept these flowers on the stems and just cut them down to the length I needed and popped them in.
I would really like to deepen the mantel though, would give me more room to work with. We have a fire place underneath but I’m sure that shouldn’t affect the depth. I guess that will be a project to add to the list!
