Fall Mantel

I love Fall and I love getting down my decorations and decorating and knowing that Christmas will be right around the corner.  Every year I try to do something different and make new crafts for my house.  This year I wanted to make a burlap pendant for sure.  Since I scored LOTS of burlap at a garage sale in March for only 5 dollars, I thought I would pull it out and give it a try.

I bought this wooden template at hobby lobby for $1.  I traced it onto my burlap and then cut them out.


Since I have soooo much Burlap, I decided to spray paint it orange instead of buying more.  The spray paint covered it really well and looks great.


I used my silhouette to cut out FALL and use for  stencils.  I used acrylic paint to make my letters.




I laid them out onto brown ribbon and hot glued them down.


Here is my finished mantel ready for fall.  It seems like I keep adding to it or rearranging it everyday.  But I really like how it turned out this year.
