Thanksgiving mantel.1

I need a little color pallet cleansing between Halloween and Christmas so my Thanksgiving mantel is always pretty calming and neutral. I love adding texture to give it the dimension it needs.

This candlestick has actually been broken twice but I keep gluing it back together because I love it so much. I painted the pumpkin last year by painting the circles on with white craft paint then spraying it with a light coat of metallic Champagne spray paint.

I made the Give Thanks sign by taking the back off an old picture frame and adding gold metallic vinyl letters to the front of the glass.

I love the texture of the grapevine pumpkin against the softness of the feathers.

More texture and finish variations with the glass leaves, wood pumpkin, ceramic pumpkin, and glass candlestick.

I love branches so I cut some out of the backyard to add to the white pitcher then I hung these awesome felted acorns from the branches. My friend made them for me, now I want to make more. Aren’t they the cutest?

Have you decorated for Thanksgiving or have you skipped to Christmas? I can’t skip Thanksgiving, it means to much to me.

I like how it uses some pumpkins still so you can use some of the same decor from the month before! Lovely!
