Give Thanks Fall Mantel

Hi Ya'll!
I can't tell you how happy I am that Fall is finally here!  We've had some pretty extreme temperatures in North Dallas and it's so nice to be able to enjoy the outdoors with my kids again.  We spent a good part of our summer indoors and I have to say it was a challenge keeping them entertained.  We enjoyed lots of indoor swimming and play dates at Chick-fil-A! I think we were all glad when school started!

Over the weekend, I pulled the Fall decor out of the attic and managed to set up a mantel scape, just in time for the "It's Fall Ya'll" Link Party!  Layla at The Lettered Cottage is hosting the first of four parties and hers is all about MANTELS!  I love seeing all the beautiful ways we decorate, they are all so inspiring.  I'm sure I'll be doing some serious pinning this week!  :)

So, without further ado, here is my mantel...
The pennant banner is my favorite project that my scrapbookin' buddy and I made last year.  We made the flowers out of large scalloped die cuts.  We distressed them with ink, scrunched them up and layered them together, forming them into cute shabby flowers.  I can post a tutorial on these or attach a link on the "how-to" if anyone is interested!

I made the wreath out of dried putka pods.  I love the added texture it brings to the room.  They look like mini pumpkins!
I hung it over the painted wallpaper canvases 
that were inspired by Sarah at Thrifty Decor Chick.  
I'll be getting my front door ready for Rhoda's Door Decor on Thursday!
Have a great week!
