Say hello to my little friend newly dressed up fall mantel.

This mantel came together in a very short time. Isn't that the best kind?

I went to Michael's yesterday on the way home from the library. We just finished our H. C. Andersen unit study (Just posted on B's corner) and are diving head first into some Norse Mythology. All the fall stuff was 50% off. Yay!

But back to the mantel. I cut a bit off the two sticks with my big girl wire cutters.

I made the cobber crackle pots last year for my Christmas table. Now I am re-using them here in my fall display. I plopped two IKEA forever Fejkas into them...

Then stuck a stick of leaves down the center of them. And Voilà - two fall mini trees.The raven also jumped into my basket. As did the faux gourds.

I got some wooden letters which I quickly spray painted with gold and spelled out Autumn.

Oh and a clip-on bird. Can't have too many of those.

That spider was a topper on a birthday cake for one of B's birthdays years ago. He is a Halloween baby.

I got a strand of pepper corn which I unfolded...

then folded it into a bigger wreath. I twisted the ends around to secure the circle.

Then I hung it from my mirror using fish line. Ever since I turned my quatrefoil mirror, I have these nifty <> to hang things from

And there you have it. A quick mantel display!  Happy fall y'all  ;)
