My fall mantle--and some fall inspired decor!

Okay friends are you ready for picture over load?!
Soo do you remember my make-shift mantle that was all decorated for spring/summer with a very nautical feel?!


well we have a new feel---a fall feel going on now!


And I think I am really enjoying this new look.


I love change.
(if you want the tutorial for how I made my fall sign--click here.... I used dollar canvases and up-cycled them!)


I love these pedestal bowls---I hoard them. 
Seriously.
I buy them up from thrift shops like nothing!
I like them white and light buttt they got hit with black spray paint for the season.


I had some fun making the wreaths also!


I made all 3 for less than 5 dollars!


They are fabric wrapped, then tulle wrapped.
Then I added some fun fabric flowers and vintage buttons!


annnd my new favorite fall decor item EVER---pheasant feathers!


I love them!  
I love how they frame out the wreath and everything on the mantle.


Andd how they add to a collection of white pumpkins.



what do you think?  
I can honestly say that I didn't spend more than 10 dollars on my fall decor---which makes me even more excited than anything!


I even used some burlap coffee sacks to add to the decor.


Kind of fun right?!
What do you think about my fall love for pheasant feathers?!  

I am linking up to a few of these wonderful link-y parties!!!
I hope you are planning to link up at this weeks Crafty Scrappy Happy party---starting this week on Wed. night!

Absolutely L.O.V.E. everything you did to the mantle. Before you even mentioned it later in your post, the pheasant feathers are the first thing I noticed - how funny (great minds think alike!). I'm working on my mantle this week but I'll doing Halloween theme first, then move to a more traditional fall/thanksgiving theme for November. Isn't there a Mantle Makeover linky party somewhere?

I loved your nautical mantle so much that I would have been hesitant to change it seasonally. WoW! I like it just as much or more! Can't wait to see what you do for Christmas.
