THANKSgiving mantle...

I had a vision in mind when I took these random, old frames and painted them a maroon red. I was thinking Thanksgiving mantle...and I'm super stoked about how it turned out!


I chose some papers from a local crafts store, choosing patterns I thought would complement one another. Then, after ordering these great vinyl letters from www.vinylexpress.etsy.com {very cool shop and the owner was super nice and incredibly fast} I made sure to adhere them well to the paper.




And WOW - I love how it all turned out! I love the combination of papers and the red fits perfectly. I actually took my Halloween decor DOWN simply to take the photos. Yes, I'm a bit insane like that. But it was worth it. :) Typically, {actually, ever since we moved into this house} there has been a large mirror on this mantle shelf, but I really like it without the mirror. 

Change is always good. 


My personal favorite is the H. :)
I hope you like. Another super easy, relatively inexpensive project done!
