Old Wooden Fence Fall Mantel

I have collected quite a few pieces of post Hurricane Ike wood.  It’s been stored in our garage for a LONG TIME.  I finally got up the nerve to do something “out of MY box”!  When I first thought of hanging up a chunk of Hurricane weathered fencing over my mantel I thought I had gone crazy. But, now that it’s up, I think I LOVE it.

That wreath is my first handmade wreath.  Those cute pumpkin Mr. Wonderful picked up for me in the Target Dollar Spot.  I’m IN LOVE with that Glade candle.

The pumpkin and fall pots are pretty leftovers from last years mantel.

I quickly made that little burlap pennant banner.  The fence board just “needed something” over there, didn’t it?

My SIL Teresa gave me that cute grapevine pumpkin! The other pumpkins are real, pine cones and berries are from a cute little fall decor set I bought for Alice.

What do y’all think?  Have you ever stepped out of your comfort zone to create something?

Be sure to stop by tomorrow to see how I turned this old wood into art and how this precious girl loves to help her mama decorate!

  1. What a wonderful touch! Not only does it add great texture and color to your mantle, it also evokes memories of where it may have come from — a homestead? A farm? Someone’s tiny urban garden where it was a treasured centerpiece? Autumn is all about time and it’s passage, and winding down in preparation for harvest and the eventual dawning of a new year. Your fence pieces bring that forward-most to my mind. There is nothing quite like wood, sometimes. I am so glad I came across your mantle. I am adding you to my favorites and will visit again. I found you at the linky party at Centsational Girl.
