Fall Fireplace Mantel

It’s Fall Y’all! Here in Texas we are still experiencing some warm (ok, hot!!) weather, but I am so ready for the season of Fall! I could not wait to start decorating. This week I have been working on my fireplace mantel, and here’s what I came up with… I wanted to have something big to use as a backdrop so I began with a large frame and mat that I got at Hobby Lobby.  I also wanted to make something and decided on a book page canvas that was multipurpose.  I love to decorate for fall, but in September...
