Fall Pumpkin Decor on My "Mantel"
There's not much that's different from last year, but I did move things around a little bit.
My pumpkins are a mix of craft store and Dollar Tree faux pieces painted with black craft paint. The vintage metal Thermos lunchbox was a thrifty estate sale purchase (it's perfectly beat up-love it!) and the little metal stars are from Target's Dollar Spot last year. I'm leaning towards spray painting them both the same color...just not sure which shade.
I'm working in most of my Fall decorations this week, and I plan on adding some Halloween goodies here and there over the weekend. At first I was disappointed that I decided not to go out and buy new "stuff," but now I'm realizing that working with what I have makes me more creative! Some spots in my house might look similar to last year, but I'm enjoying moving things around.
As always, the Family Room is a work on progress...when my sofa slipcover comes in I'll be able to make some more concrete plans for the room. This area is a bit blah, but I know it will come together one of these days...half the fun is waiting until I find just the right pieces and/or inspiration!
Next on my agenda is to pick up a few inexpensive supplies and put a Halloween wreath together for the front door.
Are you using what you have this year, or have you added some new pieces?
