Hey there guys! I finally got around to finishing our Fall mantel with owls and a tad of whimsy.
Remember my dress rehearsal post that I shared the polka-dot burlap banner? Well, I played around with the mantel until I finally achieved the look I was going for. It’s always a struggle for me to decorate the mantel. It’s so not traditional and it’s hard to decorate with that open nook.
I will tell you though, since saying goodbye to our yellow toned walls, it has made it a whole lot easier.
I really love the copper owl swag I found at Home goods. It also came in silver. However, the copper spoke more fallish to me.
The best DIY in our living room to date is painting the fireplace surround. You can find how to paint your fireplace surround HERE.
It’s funny, I seem to get on a new theme each year. Last year our mantel was decorated more with sunflowers. Which you know I love those too.

But this year it was all about the owl. This cute wreath I actually found at Rite-Aid. It was marked 50% off. I wound up paying $10.00 for him.
I left my turquoise glass vase owl up from my summer mantel and added an arrangement of sunflowers to that.
That owl came from Walmart.
I really loved the mercury pumpkin I found at Home goods. It was cute and I already had the greenery ball that I just sat on top of it. I could add flowers, or sticks for next year’s look. I am always thinking ahead.
I truly LOVE this time of year. Something about it just brings out a spark in me. I find more comfort and joy in decorating this time of year. I have always felt our home to be more suited for the fall season.
