Turquoise Fall Mantel {with Painted Pumpkins}



Happy Thanksgiving Monday!
{Psst...20% off in my Shop Today...use code THANKFUL}

So far this long weekend, we've enjoyed a fabulous turkey dinner with all the fixin's and lots of family time...next on the list is a corn maze and pumpkin picking later on today...

Right now though, I wanted to share our Fall Mantel with you...

I was inspired by these painted pumpkins which were part of my 7 Fabulous Pumpkins Collection a few weeks back. As much as I loved the pinks that they used, it didn't really work with our color scheme...what I came up with was a mix of blues, turquoises and gold that fit perfectly with the rest of our decor and isn't your typical fall color scheme...


It was a nice afternoon project for my 3 year old too...he loved it, only was a bit disappointed that I wouldn't let me paint the pumpkins red {his favorite color}...hehe... the sparkles were a bit of a nightmare and we had them everywhere, but it gives the navy pumpkin a nice touch...




For this little plague, I was dying to try this DIY Chalkboard Paint from A Beautiful Mess, but I put a gold metallic spin on it...I love how it turned out! And it will be so pretty at Christmas time too...




What do you think? Do you like my Turquoise Inspired Fall Mantel? Have you done any fall decor color schemes that were outside the box?

LOVING your blue pumpkins!! I saw you on Artsy Girl Connection and came to say hello. I use upside-down glasses to raise things on my mantels, too, but never thought of putting stuff under them like you did. Great job on this!!
