Decorating for Fall - 2020

October 5, 2020


Hello blog friends and Happy October!



I love decorating my mantel each year for fall.  When it comes to decorating the inside of my house I'm a traditional girl.  I like using the autumn colors of the leaves with orange, brown, and white on the mantel.  I've been decorating my mantel this way for many years now and I never get tired of the way it looks.


The painting seen over the mantel was painted by me many years ago when I was in high school.  It is a scene of a church in the woods over looking the water during the fall.      

I first put on the mantel a strand of faux leaves that I purchase many years ago at a dollar store.  I also added to the mantel some mini pumpkins that were purchased from the Dollar Tree store.


The Be Thankful pumpkin was purchased at Michaels many years ago.


I also added the Happy Fall pumpkin that was also purchased at Michaels.  I added to the ends on opposite sides of the mantel little fall tins from Michaels.


Next, I added these crocheted mini pumpkins that I made back in 2013 to the mantel.   

I found the pattern to crochet these at the blog Repeat Crafter Me.  If you would like to make these mini crochet pumpkins, you can find the pattern here.



I love that you can find so many amazing fall decorations at the dollar store.  You can also make and DIY some cute decorations for your home.

Let's get creative and craft!

  2. Julie...your painting is FABULOUS!!!!!! I love it!!! You’ve decorated your mantle so prettily, and your painting is the main focus. I’ve made those crocheted pumpkins and just made my daughter one. Mine are a little different but such fun to make.

  20. Hello Julie! I love how you decorate for fall. I hardly have much fall decorations in the house. I'm going to look for the faux fall leaves at the dollar tree and start from there. Those crochet pumpkins are the cutest. I can stare at the painting all day. Virtual hugs to you my friend! 🤗
