Hello there! Hope you had a fun weekend.
This is my first time decorating the mantel for autumn, but I just got the urge to do it. Maybe it's because I have a better attitude about this autumn...who knows. Anyway, I decided to do a little craft project similar to the cupcake bunting that I made for my sister's birthday except with rectangles and my gold leafing pen. I really love my gold leafing pen. I have used it so much that it's about time for a new one and I've only had it for a month!
To make this bunting, I did the same thing as before, so there's really no need for a step by step in detail. Here's the summary:
1. Cut out shapes from cover stock (I chose rectangles) and color the paper (unless you are smart and buy a paper that is already colored!).
2. Poke two holes into each piece of paper.
3. String the paper onto a wire/string/thread, whatever you want to use. No picture of that, but you get the point.
This is how it turned out
And this is the mantel. Didn't have to purchase anything, I already had everything from previous years!
I think I might make another bunting to accompany that one because it looks a little lonely up there.
Have you decorated your mantel for autumn yet or do you even do that? If so I'd love to see! Leave a link in the comments.
