{Fall Decorating} - Putting the Final Touches on My Fall Mantle

I keep thinking I'm done decorating my fall mantle, then I turn around and add a few more details.

The latest are these brown paper leaves I made and painted.  I think they really tie the mantle display and the fall banner together.  I posted the full directions on making these paper leaves on Hometalk.

I might be done decorating for fall.  Or I might have one more craft project in the works.  Stay tuned :)

{Craft Tutorial} Falling for Fall: No Sew Fall Welcome Banner

This year, for some reason, I keep doing more and more fall crafting and decorating.  After dressing up my mantle with my Scrap Fabric Fall Leaves decoration and then building some Stacked Pumpkin Topiaries, I thought my fireplace still needed some autumn cheer.  So over this past (very) rainy weekend, I made this easy No Sew Fall Welcome Banner to hang from my mantle.  I love the festive color it adds to our dark (so far) unused fireplace.

This truly is an easy project that can be done over a weekend.  All you need is some fabric, a bunch of artificial leaves, and some glue!  You can find all the directions on my Hubpages!
