an autumn-inspired handmade + vintage mantel

tis the season for warm apple cider, campfires, flannel, colorful leaves, hand knits & pumpkins!

happy first day of fall, y'all!

in celebration of such a lovely season, i thought it might be fun to kick things off with our autumn-inspired farmhouse mantel. 

i shopped around my home & pulled together some things from here & there along with a few pieces from the steph loves ben shop (don't you just love her handmade goodies?!). 

last year i picked up that little woven pumpkin for one buck at the thrift store & paired it with my antique scale. 

while junkin' with my mom last weekend, i picked up that rusty antique trophy & planted fake succulents in it. 

y'all that little yellow polka dot happy flag was the first one i ever made years ago! i just can't get rid of it. doesn't it look so cute in my little trophy? memories...

i also added a wooden crate to the mantel for height & put little treasures inside including a stuffed pumpkin purchased at a craft show & a cute little shot of us surrounded by pumpkins on luke's momma's porch. it's the perfect spot to also add found treasures such as colorful fallen leaves & acorns.

i absolutely adore my fun felt circle bunting & "happy fall" banner from steph loves ben! you can customize the colors to fit your own unique theme! i just can't handle the cuteness!

i've used stephanie's pom pom flowers in my home for years. the mustard yellow pom poms are my absolute favorite & match everything. i paired them in a cute green mason jar with an antique flower lid. i love having touches of handmade goodies mixed with vintage finds on my mantel.

i hope this little tour of our mantel inspires you to put out a few pumpkins & spruce up your farmhouse for fall! 

also, i am so excited to share that steph loves ben has created a little "natalie creates fall decorating package" for you with a fun kraft happy fall banner, felt circle bunting & pom pom flowers! it's the perfect package to complete your mantel decor. click here to purchase! xo!

I haven't done my autumn mantel yet. I must be really late because even my 6 year old son was asking, "Where are the pumpkins, Mom?" Thanksgiving is only 2 weeks away here in Canada, so I'd better get a move on before the family comes for turkey dinner. I think I'll start with some pom-pom flowers just like yours!
