I do say this a lot, but I absolutely love this time of year! The end of the year is always so magical because of the many festivities and holidays. Home decor makes the holiday season that much more exciting. It creates a warm atmosphere that allows for the spirit of each holiday to thrive. But, it can be difficult to upkeep– and pretty expensive too.
During the early autumn season, I created a simple, fall arrangement for my mantle. This mantle decor was up during the month of September, and later replaced for my Halloween decor in October. Now that it is November, it is time to get creative with the next holiday! In the end, I decided to reuse the books, leaf garland, deer antlers, candles/candlesticks, the pumpkins, and a vase of branches I gathered from around outside my house. The small pine cone branches came from the craft store.
It’s great to use the resources around your home! When it comes to decorating, my mottos is “shop your home.” So, take a look around your home and see what you can use! Just let your imagination and creativity run wild!
As you decorate, it is important to incorporate different textures. For my living room setting, I used two different blankets that each had different textures that complimented my mantle decorations. One blanket is a nice, neutral-colored wool with fringe on the end. The other blanket is a cream-colored cable knit. Both blankets help create a warm, inviting atmosphere. I brought logs in from the back yard to use for my mantlescape.
