MY FIREPLACE MANTLE FALL DECOR WITH LACE PUMPKIN TUTORIAL

I am so excited that fall is here!  Don't get me wrong,  I love summer, but the heat.....OMG I can't stand it anymore!

I picked up some supplies and also worked with whatever I had around the house.

I really like using what I have, and just add some new things.  I like re-arranging, and getting a totally different look.

So happy to share with you.


My mantle.

Wrapped my biggest pumpkin with black lace.  A romantic and sexy pumpkin.....lol
I also purchased some purple masks from the dollar store and some autumn leaves too.


I used some dried roses that I have had for over 2 years.
My pumpkin wearing some bling.....lol


Sexy Pumpkin

I adhered the lace by wrapping it around the pumpkin and securing it with a pin.  The pumpkin is a fake one, by the way.  



I made tiny little pleats on top beside the stem and put a pin to secure. I continued to do this all the way around.  Turned the pumpkin over and did the same on the under side.  Also, as you are pleating on the bottom, you can give it a nice tug to smooth it out.


And here is the completed pumpkin.

This is my hallway small table that I decided to decorate too.


I pulled apart the leaves from the branch that I purchased and just arranged them in the all year round fake flowers that I have on the table.  (The arrangement also  gets a Christmas makeover too)   I also added the tall centre arrangement which is real from my garden.
It is a weed, that grew so big, that it went to seed......now this weed I like.




Hope you enjoyed my fall decor.  Thanks for dropping by.  Have a great day!

  1. That is one sexy looking pumpkin!!! The pattern on the lace really stands out. How did you get the lace so smooth and how did you attach it? It might be easy to do but you should do a tutorial on this. I'd like to know.

  2. Thanks so much Gail. The lace, (which was originally white, and because I didn't feel like going out and purchasing black, I painted it....lol) was put on and secured with pins on the top of the pumpkin and on the bottom.
    I will do a tutorial, and post. Really easy. You can even podge it, but I thing you would have to cut it, and I did not want the pattern broken up.

  23. I'm not much of a DIYer, so it's always nice to see what other people can do with a little creativity and elbow grease. Your floral arrangement it fantastic! Heck, my husband thinks ALL flowers are weeds, so...! :-) (thank goodness he doesn't mow the lawn anymore!) Fabulous job on that pumpkin!!!! It's got a whole Stevie Nicks look going on! Great idea to use a faux pumpkin, too, so that you can get use out of your creation in the future! Very nicely done!
