Redorating the mantel is a sure sign of the seasons changing.  This year for Fall I wanted to incorporate some pumpkins, and apples as well as a bit of a vintage science feel.  

I’m joining in with the Seasonal Simplicity Fall Series today.  Be sure to check out all the amazing fall mantels at the end of the post.

The Wreath

The DIY Pampas Grass Wreath is the one I made last week, you can find the whole tutorial to make your own here.  It’s made of grasses that grow wild around my house, and it was fun hunting and gathering for it.

The wreath is hung on this old door I found at an antique store.  I love it’s chippy old white paint, and since we have a corner shaped mantel, the door makes a great backdrop for the mantel.

Science Elements

This year I’m decorating again with a vintage botanical science theme to my decor for fall.  I picture a Victorian woman with a bit of a flare for the study of plants and insects.  To pull off this look, I’ve  incorporated a few vintage pieces -my favourite is the vintage drawer with the old bottles.  I imagine her collecting and sorting different flowers, feathers, and plants to examine.

This year I’m incorporating some different insects into my decor.  These beautiful butterflies are also from an antique fair.

And my scientist, she’s also got her books and magnifying glass for further study.

The apples are some from an old crab apple tree I found on a walk.  They won’t last too long, but they feel perfectly fall.  And they smell great too.  The good news about fresh foliage that won’t last is that it will require more fall walks to look a replacement.

The macrame bunting is a favourite of mine.  I shared how I made it here -it’s really easy even if you’re a beginner at macrame.  I can’t seem to take it down -it just seems to look good for every season.
