Thanksgiving Mantel

As the seasons change, so does the mantel!
And seriously, how cute are those printables?  I have the honor of working with Life-n-Reflections as an affiliate.  Life-n-Reflection carries a wide variety of photo templates, textures, and printable party supplies.  When Kristy sent me this file, I was so excited to incorporate it into my Thanksgiving Mantel!

This adorable family tree printable is a Photoshop printable.  She has a great YouTube tutorial on how to use the clip masking.  As someone who had never done clip masking in Photoshop, I was easily able to interpret her tutorial and come up with this great fall printable for my mantel.

The Fall Time pennant banner is another Life-n-Reflection creation and part of her harvest line.  I draped the hemp twine across the upper corner of my wood photo backdrop and used mini clothespins to attach the pennants.  Then I used my Cameo to cut out the wording at the bottom.

Don’t you just love corn seeds and wheat?  It really screams “harvest” in my opinion!

I found this wicker pumpkin at Michaels in the clearance section.  It had lights but I didn’t like them so I cut them out.

I am beyond thrilled with how it turned out!

    Love this mantel. It is clean, crisp, and fresh but with a fall feel! I love the wood Grateful sign with the banner. I just might try something like that myself. Visiting from Happy Hour. I’m your newest follower.

    Love this! So beautiful! If I may ask…why did you choose a Cameo {over a crucit}? Just asking because I’d like to get one of the machines, too. Just don’t know what would be best.
