So, I don’t know about you…but, we are having the most BEAUTIFUL Fall weather here in Indiana. Right now it’s 70 degrees and sunny. Love it!
You might remember that I am participating in the Harvest Tour of Homes hosted by Stringtown Home. I’ve already shown you my Fall Tablescape, and tomorrow you can look forward to a Fall wreath tutorial!

I can’t even tell you how happy I am to have a fireplace mantel to decorate for the season. This mantel design cost me $0 because I shopped my home and used items that were already in my holiday storage bins.
When the candles are all lit up it’s so beautiful…especially with the glow of the fireplace. Magical!
My Autumn subway art is available as a FREE download at the end of this post.
For Thanksgiving last year I purchased a bag of cinnamon scented pinecones and spray painted them silver. I used them as part of my holiday table decor. They add a natural element, yet a bit of glam to the mantel this year.
As you might remember from the tablescape, these twigs were given to me by my mom. I cut them to different sizes for the larger centerpieces and took the left-over pieces to fill a vintage mason jar.
Don’t you just love those pumpkin candles? I cannot for the life of me remember where they came from, and I can’t bear to actually light them; but, they’re still awesome.
In my pantry was a bag of split peas that I got from the Amish grocery. I can’t even remember exactly when they were purchased, so I couldn’t bring myself to actually eat them. Perfect for Fall decor, right? The “pea jar” is one of my favorite elements of this mantel. The green is a nice surprise since everything else is browns, yellows, and oranges.
This cornucopia is actually part of a set I purchased at a local store going out of business last year. I’ve found that this is a great element to tie-in all of my Fall decor throughout the house. I have one cornucopia at the entrance of my home, one on the dining table, and this one on the mantel.
