Day 12: Fall Branch Mantle

Good Morning!

I am linking up to Kate at Centsational Girl for the fall mantle link party. The party starts today at 8am PST.

Day 12 of the 25 Days of Fall Countdown

So, I know I went on in Day 14 that I didn’t have a mantle. Well, today I decided to make my own. Here’s a non-traditional twist on a mantle and I think it is great and rustic for fall.

I went in the woods and just started pulling out branches that looked interesting. I’m sure if anyone saw me they would wonder what in the world I was doing!

I just wove them together in a way that they naturally fit and secured them with floral wire.

I removed my basket table and lamp and put the fireplace gear back out.

Happy Fall Y’all!
