I love decorating for fall, mostly because I love the colors you can use to warm up the house. I used this frame fitted with burlap
and switched out the stars for foam pumpkins that I cut in half, but kept the stem.
Here is a great picture of the whole mantel put together including the pumpkin specimen art.
I printed a cute little owl silhouette onto burlap, see this tutorial http://poppiesandpinwheels.blogspot.com/2011/08/for-love-of-burlap.html. for how to print directly onto burlap.
I'd love to see your fall decor!!!
