Fall Mantel with Pallet Art




Hi Everyone and thanks for stopping by! I shared my living room with you all last week and I had several ask me about my pallet art that sits on my mantel. It is so easy I feel bad to even post about it!

But you like easy right?





I first had to gather up some old pallets. Then I had to cut them apart. I gave you all the way to do it in my pallet post!

I made my own board with all the gathered slats.

Then I gathered lots of branches that I wrapped with yarn to insert in the rose.


I also wrapped antique embroidery hoops with the same colored yarn and slid silk leaves inside. I really wanted to hang these from the ceiling but never did. 

But the main beauty is the paper rose I taught you how to do a while ago. This was what made the wall pop!

I loved the 3D effect of it!!

All this for free!! You can't beat that!!



Love my fall mantel!

Yeah Deneen, how do you come up with all the awesome crafty ideas, for nothing? That I love. Haven't been on your blog in ages and I sure miss you and it. You always have such incredible ideas.
We've been making things with pallet wood, luckily we found a source that had lots of them but found out it's no more so glad for what we have. Now to find a way to sell what we make. I love making signs with the smaller pieces of pallet wood.
Love all your posts. I'll have to look into the posts you talk about at beginning of this post.
Happy weekend
