I also work to put together a little touch of Fall in our house. We don't have a real mantel. But I still want to decorate something similar to "mantel". I use stuff that I already have around me most some of them from previous years decoration. So I didn't spend any money on this Fall. And I go with the natural color of Fall orange, red, yellow, and brown.
The only things new is the word print. I print out Happy Autumn and some of the verse from the Bible through pic monkey program. The frame I got it from one of my shopping cart diving so it's FREE.
This wreath is from last year front door decoration. It's very simple wreath I just hot glued leaves and rosettes on grave vine wreath.
Basket from one of my shopping cart diving as well. I filled it with pinecones that picked out from the local park and faux red apples to give a touch of Fall.
Pumpkins fall decorations I got from drug store when they have 90 % sale a couple of year ago. I love the pitcher with the orange bird and leaves which I paid for $.50 months back.
