So I thought I’d show you my Thanksgiving Mantel.
It’s not anything amazing or magazine worthy (lol) but I’d love to know what you think. Let’s discuss design shall we?
After the Halloween Mantel – I wanted something a little simpler – more subtle. And normally I am all about color – but I felt like using a more muted color scheme for this.
Greens, Ivory, Copper, that sort of thing.
Here’s the full view:
Let’s look at some closeups. :)
My big giant Twine “M” is back. LOVE. I found a copper pot at Joann’s and stuck some green hydrangeas in it. The spools are wrapped with yarn from my stash.
You might think that I embroidered my little Be Thankful Always Sign. Nope. Found it at the Thrift Store for $1. :)
I have a cute little green birdie and some more thread spools wrapped with coordinating yarn for him to watch over.
Kato is having fun rolling them off onto the floor. Every. Day.
Here’s one of my questions. Giant Rug Beater on the left side? or no? You can scroll up to the full mantel to see it without.
I kind of like the balance of something tall but not sure if this works or not.
My little hurricane is a dollar store vase taped to a dollar store candle holder and filled with buttons. I wrapped it with pretty green felt ribbon.
My twine pumpkin came from Target a few years ago, along with the wreath in the center. I picked them up on Clearance. Score!
I like it. I’m just not 100% sure about it. Make sense?
Does it need something more?
Keep in mind - it’s coming down in 4 days to make way for Christmas awesomeness. lol.
I’d really love to hear what you think though - Simple and Pretty? Or simple and boring? ;)
Do you decorate for Thanksgiving?
