Thanksgiving seems to get bypassed all around the country every year. Even in our home I don’t usually decorate for Thanksgiving or make it a priority. Of course we gather with our family to share dinner together, but that day is the only time we think about it.
This year I wanted to make sure we were being thankful all month so we are using this family Thanksgiving activity and the leaves are being added to a piece of twine on the mantel each day.
This mantel was finished in under 20 minutes. I had a group of friends over for a soup swap last weekend and I wanted to get the Halloween stuff down and something new up. I hope this will help you see a beautiful mantel doesn’t have to take a lot of time to complete. Just use what you have, pull from other areas of your home, and maybe make a quick DIY to finish it off.
