Fall Mantle Reveal




I'm staying out of any political discourse, but the reality is......with 
gas prices pushing $4.00 per gallon, life is expensive!

So when it comes to decorating, my options are to {mostly} use what I have.


One thing that I've had for maybe 2 years now is my corn husk wreath...


I used corn husks that I bought at a Mexican food store and cut them into triangular strips.
{Warning....it takes a lot of hot glue and many burned fingers to complete this!}


The next thing that I had was dropcloth, burlap, felt and sticks.



There are many tutorials on Pinterest that show how to make the stuffed pumpkins.
I resorted to my method of using old pillows to stuff them....free, again!


My one splurge was the "wheat"...and it's not actually wheat.  
I used a foam form from The Dollar Tree and hot glued a wheat-like grass 
to the form.  

If I had been patient, I could have gotten it for free in my backyard.....I'm not patient!

{The printable was free from Dear Lillie.}


So for spending practically nothing.....I was able to create a simple fall mantle
out of what was lying around my home and yard!





Do you decorate for fall or Halloween?
