Happy day to you all!
Today, I am sharing my our sunflower Fall mantel and diy banner.
Who loves Sunflowers?
A tall North American plant of the daisy family, with very large golden-rayed flowers. Sunflowers are cultivated for their edible seeds, which are an important source of oil for cooking and margarine.
I do, I do! I bet you do too.
Last year I bought the prettiest sunflower banner for our mantel. I found that at Home goods.
Usually I switch them out from year to year but I decided to go with the same banner this year.
I did change things up though and actually dug out a diy Fall banner I did years ago. You can see the tutorial on it. I am sure the pictures are terrible, however, you can certainly make one yourself with my easy instructions.
The little family sign you see is from Walmart by plaid. I simply painted it with Chalky paint I had on hand.
What I love about the banner is that the fabric is precut and it is like a drop cloth material. Very easy to work with and the print was neat as well. The banners came from I believe Hobby lobby. You have to go back and look at the tutorial to verify that info. My memory is foggy, this was a long time ago.
Now how about some more of the mantel and decor.
Cute owl came from Home goods and the glitter pumpkins from Dollar tree.
The faux foliage in the urns came from Home goods as well.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Hi Debbie Dear! This is so pretty and yes, I do love the sunflowers. Love everything you’ve poked onto your mantel and especially love the way that pretty wreath looks on your screen! I may have to copy that when I get my furniture. We’ve been sleeping on an air mattress for almost a month and it sprung a leak! So hopefully Tuesday we’ll get our furniture. This move was a big’un! 🙂
Stay sweet a pretty,
Oh know, sprung a leak! That certainly could not have been too comfortable Sheila:(
Love love your fall mantel. It looks so pretty. I love sunflowers too. Yours put in your mantel fall decor look awesome. Have a great Sunday.
It looks beautiful Debbie and I think it’s good to reuse things from the previous season, it makes less clutter in the storage space.
Your mantel looks great. The sunflowers are perfect for Autumn. I invite you to see my sunflowers from Provence at my blog: simplysantabarbara.blogspot.com
I love all of it! Sunflowers are so bright and happy looking. Fall is my favorite season and I just love all the decor!
Thanks Pat, mine too as you have come to know all these years!
It all looks so pretty Debbie! I love all of the bright sunflowers! Your house is beautiful!

Your mantle looks great, Debbie! The sunflowers look wonderful against the black of your mantle. I was just at a sunflower field last week taking pictures of my granddaughter, as well as the daughter and son-in-law in a few shots. They are like daisies to me ~ such a happy flower. I haven’t done any Fall decorating yet. I had thought maybe today, since it has been cool, but I got to visit with my granddaughter so the trip to the attic has been pushed off yet again. : )
I still have shells on the mantel, but I will pin this idea for when I am ready to give up summer.
I don’t blame you, hold out as long as you can. I have no restraint lol!
I love sunflowers! Your fall mantel is full of cheer!
Very pretty ideas for Fall! I can’t wait until the first cold front arrives!
My favorite time of year. I just wish we could skip winter.
