Fall Decor on Mantel 2015

Friday, October 2, 2015


Happy October Friends!


I usually do not put out fall decorations inside my house, but this year I decided to do some decorating in my living room.  I was inspired because of all the blogs I have been visiting and looking at their fall home decor.  I was determined this year to decorate my mantel with crocheted apples that I wanted to make.

If you would like to visit my post on how to make your own crochet apples you can visit my blog post HERE.




The other items I bought at Michael's craft store and I enjoyed picking them out as there were so many to choose from.  I thought they blended in well with the crocheted apples.





This is my fall mantel and the church painting was made by me many years ago when I was a teenager and I had taken many painting lessons.  I love this fall scene and the colors of the trees.


On this small bookcase I have displayed a pumpkin crate with small pumpkins inside.  The hydrangea's are not real, but I love the way they look in the vase.




I will be mixing in with these decorations my crocheted pumpkins I made. 

 To see my mini crocheted pumpkins and to make your own in time for Halloween, you can visit HERE



I hope you enjoyed looking at my mantel decorated for fall and soon it be ready for Halloween and Thanksgiving.

  27. Your fall mantel looks lovely Julie! I admire all these fall decorations in our local craft store too, but the price tags make me leave them on the shelf. Your crocheted apples look very charming, and I think I like them best of all the decorations you have there. And that painting!!! It's beautiful with the church reflected in the water and those branches overhanging the top ... I tried to see it closer by clicking on it, but couldn't see it as close as I would like. You have a talent there that I hope you haven't put completely to rest ;) Enjoy your weekend!
