Fall Mantel with Wooden Owls

Happy Fall Ya'll! 

It's time to get out the pumpkins and start decorating! Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. I love the cooler nights, pumpkin spice everything and the beautiful colors. It just puts me in a good mood! 

I wanted to share my wooden owl mantel with you today. I found the owls at T.J. Maxx and they were my inspiration. The lanterns are from Kirkland's and the banner is from Pier 1 Imports. I glued leaves on the back of the wooden letters for some color. I bought the old wooden mirror locally and made the arrangement using fall leaves, branches, pumpkins, and wooden flowers I found at Hobby Lobby. This mantel was fun to create and I love the owls! Now it's time to finish decorating the rest of the house!

Enjoy the pictures!

I love all your decorations posted. You are so talented. Thank you for sharing. I have not seen the wooden owls around here but I live in a very small community near Shenandoah National Park. You sure are amazing.

Today let us have a chat next Louis Vuitton handbags What would it popular? Friends often watch Fashion Week street shooting some difficult to find these ultra-high rate of appearance of the Chanel handbags by the influx of people love.There are a number of high profile Original Rolex Watches brands now aggressively entering China, even though the majority of fine 1:1 Replica Breitling Watches sold to Chinese are still purchased outside of China, due to the high luxury tax on the mainland.Rolex Air King Brands, she says, need to have a presence in the Middle Kingdom in order to capture the traveler who will buy Omega Watches Replica when abroad.And the point that one of these awash is a watch not awash by Replica Tag Heuer?

I hope you and yours had a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and are looking forward to a very HAPPY NEW YEAR. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at SiteHoundSniffs.com.
