projects revisited: a fall mantel


I've been so anticipating our frolicking through the meadow to gather this fall's colorful leaves, crisp branches, and dried reeds.

Last fall I loved using nature as the focal point of our main living space, our living room.  Here is a repurposing project that can be changed out regularly or enjoyed simply for the fall season.


Here's the first half of the fall mantel tutorial on how to repurpose a canvas to create a decorative piece to hang whatever is your fancy.


And here is the second half of the fall mantel tutorial, really the "gathering" of fall to then decorate with.


I hope you have a special weekend close to those you've been away from for most of the week.  In my case, by dear husband.
