Hearth Warming

Find me on:

Hearth WarmingIf you were tuning in last month, you might recall that I decorated my mantle in a Halloween theme and promised to show you how to quickly change it for Thanksgiving. 

Thinking ahead when I created my Halloween-themed mantle, I made two paper pennant banners in one by gluing paper together, back-to-back. So, the first step was to turn over the banner. Instead of orange and black, I have soft fall colors in shades of brown and green.

I kept the gourds and pumpkins where they were, simply removed the key and candle, and then added some height. I happen to have an hour-glass, but anything in wood that’s taller than the gourds will work.

On the opposite side of the mantle shelf, I gathered more rust-colored candles, making sure each was a different height, and tucked in faux flowers.

That’s it. No need drape the mirror in black cheesecloth this month, but a roaring fire will be welcome when the temperatures start to drop!
